Like many of you, I’m currently in the processs of undergoing tests to rule out ovarian cancer. I had a visit with my gp today, and although my ca125 was only slightly elevated (38), and my ultrasound came back “unremarkable “ she is scheduling an mri, hopefully within the next two weeks. I should also include I’ve been experiencing abdominal bloating for about 6 months now (I look about 5- 6 months pregnant), and wake up to lower back pain that keeps me awake. I have very, very subtle pelvic pain, so subtle I wonder if I’m imagining it. My only other symptoms would be ankle swelling, headache, indigestion, and severe exhaustion. I guess I’m just curious about the mri. I know I have symptoms that may suggest ovarian cancer, but my ca125 was only slightly elevated and nothing showed on the ultrasound. Am I missing something? Is the mri really necessary? I don’t want to sound ungrateful...my gp is an incredible doctor and very thorough. Is there something she might know that I don’t? Im 45 years old with no family history of ovarian cancer or breast cancer. Can the mri potentially show something the ultrasound completely missed?
