6 weeks ago a < l centimeter mass/cyst was found on my left ovary. I waited six weeks and then repeated the transvaginal ultrasound. The mass/cyst was unchanged so my GYN is recommending I wait 6 months and repeat the ultrasound. My CA125 is normal 6.5. 5 years ago I was diagnoised with breast cancer. Before I was diagnosed I had a suspicioud mammogram and told to wait 6 months. The repeat mammogram and biopsy confirmed a 3 centimeter lobular cancer. I have had surgery and chemo. Needless to say...I am not feeling very joyful to hear the wait 6 months plan again!!!
My father died from colon cancer, his brother from cancer of the pancreas, and my grandmother from uterine cancer. I have breast cancer and so does my paternal cousin. .....Should I get a second opinion at a regional hospital from a gyn oncologist. Should I demanded a biopsy from my gyn? I am not good at trusting when my instincts are alerted!
