Help, what does this all mean?
Went for a pelvic ultrasound scan last Wednesday afternoon due to horrible bleeding and pain. Was asked to return the following afternoon, Thursday, for 2nd pelvic ultrasound as she couldn't see what she wanted to, had both TA & TV scan. The Sonographer was lovely, super kind and caring on 2nd visit despite all the pushing and pressing she had to do (couldnt find left ovary).
Got phone call from GP first thing on the Friday morning, which shocked me as it was very late on the Thursday when I left the hospital. Told me I needed to see a consultant as they had found a cyst on my right ovary that was 'a little bit odd' and had walls plus something inside it.
Hospital phoned me on the Monday morning asking me to attend clinic on the Tuesday which I refused as alarm bells were starting to ring. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and this was very similar in speed (still under observation but no treatment, all clear now).
So I went to hospital yesterday afternoon and saw the consultant who was very matter of fact but didnt give me very much information at all. She said they have found a type of cyst that they do worry about, it might be dermoid but they can't tell from the ultrasound, and she couldn't give me anymore information until they have taken a look at it under a camera and done a biopsy. She sent me off to get CA125, HCG, & AFT bloods done and told me she would talk to me after the laparoscopy, after the MDT meeting - when all the team would review my scans, bloods and whatever information they got from the biopsy. She said I would have the biopsy done in the next couple of weeks.
Then this morning the hospital phoned to say my consultant is now on holday until Tuesday 30th August and then her list is full for a week so they will contact me again in September when they have her availability!
Im confused! Should I be worried about all this? Seems very fast (not complaining at all, so far its been amazingly quick) to be nothing to worry about. But it all has echoes of when i was diagnosed with breast cancer. I havent spoken to any friends or family yet as they had enough stress before. What do you all think? Something or nothing?
Cyst measures 42x40x37mm (not typical in appearance)
Bulky uterus 9.5x5x6cm
Endometrium normal and measures 2.6mm
Right ovary enlarged vol=36cc with cyst containing irregular heterogenous component 28x24x28mm, on a thin septum, no vascularity was noted within. These appearances most likely to represent a complex ovarian cyst ? dermoid ? however an underlying sinister pathology cannot be excluded.
Left ovary cannot be seen.
