I am a 39 year female - In December last year I suddenly lost my appetite and vague abdominal pain at that time I presented to my GP and he arranged ultrasound - transvaginal and abdominal - ultrasound found nothing abnormal detected. A few weeks later I had a follow CT scan with contrast and other than one small lymph node which was visible (Doctor put this down to the fact that I had a chest infection at the time). The loss of appetite has continued, I have some back ache which seems to move from side to side and am bloated but not constantly, abdominal pain continues to come and go - now 7 months on I have colonoscopy and gatroscopy. Gastroscopy showed hiatus hernia and colonoscopy showed flat 30mm polyp (biopsies have come back as benign) which I am awaiting removal of. I questioned with my Dr about the symptoms being those of ovarian cancer and he said but you had a clear CT 7 months ago. Although he now has arrnaged abdo U/S and has done blood markers - is it reassuring that all scans were negative 7 months ago?
