In the last 3 years since turning 30 I have had 3 cancerous ovarian cysts and have now had both my ovaries removed. In my last check up I made a comment about not being worried about recurrence as everything (ir my ovaries) has been removed so there's nowhere left for it to come back. He mentioned that it could still appear somewhere nearby which I guess I'd never thought about. My main fear revolves around the fact that the 3 times I did have it my blood tests were all 100% fine so how will my regular blood tests help put my mind at ease? I asked what symptoms to look out for but they are all vague and I now think I can notice some but imagine its just psychosomatic. I have never been fearful through this whole experience but I had a friend yesterday find out that he has terminal cancer (at the age of 20) and it has made me so sad and fearful and I don't know how to shake it.
