I am 23 years old and I have been having intermenstrual bleeding and post-coital bleeding since the beginning of this year. After about 6 months I decided to see my GP about this and they referred me to the hospital to see a gynaecologist. They did a colposcopy which came back fine and they did I transvaginal scan which showed a 7.2cm cyst on my right ovary. I had a follow up appointment with my consultant gynaecologist who told me that it was complex (some solid and some fluid areas) and I would need a laparoscopy to have it removed. She also recommended a blood test for CA 125. The results came back normal, does this mean I do not have ovarian cancer? My consultant is now going to book me in for another transvaginal scan and then book me in for surgery. I'm confused about the normal levels of CA 125 and what they mean.
