After an ultrasound it was thought I had an ovarian cyst. I went to see a gyne yesterday and he said I haven't. One of the tubes lead-in to my overy is swollen at the end. He reassured me and said it was fine to leave it alone. Today, as I was looking at my news feed on Facebook I saw a post saying how inflammation increases the chance of cancer !!! Now I am worried ! He didn't mention anything about inflammation? And thinking , if it is swollen, does it mean it's inflamed ? And if so why didn't he give me anti inflammatory tablets? My mum says she has a swelling on her knee but it isn't inflamed ? I am probably panicked because I have health anxiety ,so would appreciate some reassuring words and would be interested if anyone else has had this ?
