I am 66 years old. I have been monitored for fibroids. This week I went for an ultrasound scan and vaginal scan. The fibroids had shrunk but my right ovary had enlarged. in September the scan showed a cyst on my ovary. The gynaecologist advised me to have my ovaries removed and is making an appointment for me to be admitted. She did say the other option was to have an MRI scan presumably to determine why the enlargement. My dilemma is, should I have them removed or have the scan? My CA-125 was normal and I have no family history of ovarian cancer or breast cancer. If I do have them removed how will I feel afterwards? I still suffer from hot flushes etc..
