Hi I’m 26years old and I’m so scared that they could be testing for ovarian cancer. Back when I was 20 I had a ruptured cyst and was found to have a cyst on my left ovary which didn’t cause any bother. In May 2016 when I was 24 I was in unbearable pain and in and out of hospital. They were first treating me for endometriosis but later found a nice 12.5cm by 12.2cm fibroid which weighed 6lb. In December 2016 I had an open myomectomy to have the fibroid removed.
Since my op things just haven’t been right. The pain was coming and going and my periods were just getting worse. January this year the pain came back just as bad as it was when I became ill in 2016 and has not left. I’m in pain every single day and some days I’m unable to move. I’m currently not able to work due to being on strong pain relief.
I just had my ultrasound on Friday and they seemed really off wth me. She told me that she couldn’t see any fibroids but I feel like she can see something worse. After I left the hospital they got in touch with my doctor and have requested me that have a blood test. I don’t know what blood test they have requested but I feel it could be CA125. I have so much playing through my mind as you can understand only being 26. My mum had breast cancer which already puts me at a higher chance.
Am I just overthinking all of this?
