My Gyno just called me with the results of my transvaginal ultrasound. Apparently I have an ovarian cyst that is less than half an inch. I'm 42 years old and never had any ovarian
I'm extremely worried because my mother died from Ovarian Cancer two years ago. Her's was the size of a golf ball and she had ascetites (fluid in her belly). She was 68 years old and after three rounds a chemo, she deteriorated. Five months from the day of diagnosis, I lost my mother. Now I'm petrified! I took the BRCA test and it was negative and also the CA125 test, which was also negative. The Doctor wants me to do some bloodwork and another ultrasound in six weeks. She said if I was any other patient she would leave the cyst alone, but because of my family history, she doesn't want to take any chances.
Do I have anything to be concerned about?
