Try not to think of your ultrasound as a test for ovarian cancer think of it as a scan to find out what might be causing an elevated CA125 in which ovarian cancer in one of a range of possible diagnoses including endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease or other infection.

Your GP did not book the ultrasound to scare you he/she is following advice set out in government guidelines. I know you are scared but take it one step, one moment, one day at a time. If you really feel you are not coping you could go back to your GP and talk about anti anxiety medications or a referral to talk to someone about how you are feeling.

It is hard if you have no one to confide in. Believe me we have all felt like running away at times. Perhaps find out if there is a Penny Brohns centre near you or Macmillan Centre where you can pop in and have a chat. You are still grieving for your Nan as well. There is an Ovacome helpline you can ring and get some medical advise. Just a few thought and send in you a hug

When I was going through diagnosis my nanna had just been diagnosed with oesophageal cancer but sadly she passed away. I was reluctant to tell my mum as I didn't want to worry her. She told me off said that she is my mum and it's her job to worry about me. You can do this one moment at a time
