Hi everyone, I'm 53 and after a postmenopausal bleed was referred for tv scan which showed thickened endometrial lining, uterus growths and a 2.5cm complex solid cyst on my right ovary. Consultant did a uterine biopsy on the day and everything seemed quite urgent - she told me to prepare for the results as I would possibly be in for total hysterectomy the day after receiving them. She also seemed quite concerned about the 'mass' on the ovary, especially as it had solid parts and took a CA125 test. Thankfully the biopsy was negative and they think the growths are polyps but the CA125 came back as slightly elevated. It was 29 and the hospital I attend uses 25 as a marker (although she said some use 35, in which case it could be normal?). They have decided to watchful wait with repeat scan and CA125 in 8 weeks. The problem is I am now so worried and its on my mind constantly, I was having a couple of symptoms before i.e. lower back and abdomen pain, urinary urgency and tiredness but these are more frequent now and I dont know if its because of stress or if this thing is growing inside of me. I'm also confused as the urgency seems to have gone but as far as I can see from what I've read a complex cyst post menopause is quite suspicious?
