I have had my Ca125 results back today tested because I have a pain in the right hand side of my chest at the bottom of rib cage when I breathe in deeply. I had them done at my last check and they were 7 in September. Yesterday they were 22 which I know is still in the 'normal' category but a jump from 7 only 2 months ago. My clinical nurse said he might want to do a CT scan but I have since had a phone call saying my consultant would like to see me before he makes a decision on anything so I have an appointment next Wednesday with him at 3pm.
I'm really quite worried now and been looking at google (I know I shouldn't). I had ascites back last year in July so I think I may have a pleural effusion possibly? Has anyone experienced this? My cancer was stage 3b on diagnosis in 2012 and my recurrence in 2015 caused ascites and was spotted in my stomach cavity but thankfully 6 chemos (carbo only) got rid of it. If this is what it is then this means it's spread doesn't it and would that mean it's in my lungs?
Just soo worried now.
