I am 38 and had an ovary and cyst removed 4 weeks ago, I had another cyst removed from this ovary a year ago which was fine. Had my appointment where initial histology was discussed and was normal but then got a call out of the blue this week and was asked to go and see the consultant the following day who informed me that I had borderline cells within the cyst, my case was discussed at case conference at the local cancer hospital today and I am being sent for a CT scan and recommended for surgery, but the type of surgery will be decided after scan results. I am very confused, I didn't think I had cancer just some abnormal cells which had been removed yet I am being treated by the cancer centre now and as I am 38 if I have my other ovary removed I will start the menopause, all very scary and confusing! Can anyone offer any assurances or guidance on the sorts of questions I should be asking?
