I have not yet been diagnosed, but my GP is looking into the possibility of ovarian cancer. I have been feeling unwell for months, with very vague symptoms, mainly extreme tiredness and lower back pain. I had convinced myself that I had ME (from reading too much on the internet!) and my GP was also coming around to the same conclusion. That was until she sent me for an ultrasound and they discovered a cyst on each ovary (approx 30mm in size). The ultrasound nurse told me the cyst were benign, but I'm not sure how they can tell from an ultrasound? My mum died of ovarian cancer at 59 so she also arranged for me to have the CA125 blood test. At the mo' I'm waiting for the results of the test and also another scan in 2 weeks' time. Problem is I can't stop worrying. My husband's attitude is to pretend nothing is happening and telling me everything is bound to be ok ... which to be honest doesn't really help!! Do I have a right to be worried and does anyone have any tips on how to get through the waiting period??
