I am new today and not sure if this is where I should ask my question so if it isn't please let me know where to ask. I just got back from having my ultrasound which shows a small fibroid I think 9 MM. My history is that my mother died of stage 4 ovarian cancer in 2000 she had a tumor the size of a honeydew melon, she was in her 60's. I had 3 fibroid's removed with a D&C in 2002, that doctor who was my mothers doctor retired before I could get my records. I had not been back to my new doctor in 2 years because of family illnesses and went for a checkup because I had abdominal pain like bloating/having my period but I have been through menopause 4 years ago. The pain was more like discomfort when going to sit down or get up from sitting and I was due for a checkup so I went in. I should hear back from my doctor next week for his opinion from my ultrasound results.
Being it is a small fibroid can it turn into ovarian cancer or other cancers? Should I insist on having it removed or wait and see because it is small? I am pretty sure it is 9 mm not 9 cm but I asked for a CD so I can check when I get back home. My partner is worried because she had cancer in 08 and lost a breast and another lumpectomy last week which was benign thank God and I am trying to keep her calm. I probably should not have told her, but she belongs to cancer support groups and will feel better that I asked this question.
Thank you for your time,
