Hi I am 21 in a week & have been having problems for the last 11 month since I gave birth to my son & my doctors kept fobbing me off then 5 weeks ago I got a CA125 test and my level was 30 which I am know to belive is normal and 3 weeks later got tested again and my level was 41 which the doctor seemed really concerned about and has organised me to go for a urgernt scan on monday I can help but worry as I am only young and I have a young son I have had very iregular periods since having my son I beled every 11 days & after sex but I have not bled once for the past 11 weeks and I have took 4 pregnancy tests which all came back negetive, could it be cancer or am I just worrying myself? Please help me try to make sense of my situation, many thanks yasmin xx

Sounds like the Dr. Is being very. Cautious...most are not. It is better to catch in early stages,,,or it may not be anything. I know the feeling of being scared, especially with a new baby. Praying for you to have good results..so please. come back..Val

I have been to the doctors a lot about my problems as I have all the symptoms that point to ovarian cancer & my previous dr told me that there was nothing wrong with me it is normal for a girl my age to go through it so I changed my dr & this is where something has actually been found I really apreciate the reply I am just worried as I have a couple of people in my family that have had diffrent types of cancer xx

Your doctor is doing the right thing in having you get a scan. It's very possible that the rise in your CA 125 is from some other non-serious reason but it's always good to have these things checked out, just to be sure. I know how hard it is not to worry and not think the worse. Do your best to focus on your beautiful baby and know that we are praying for good test results. Please let us know the outcome.

Take care,
Kelly

It is hard to forget my mam is worrying & won't show me how much she's worrying but she's been speaking to my husband and told him to prepare for the worst which has made me worry more as I overheard them talking, I will certinaly let you know what happens would they tell me if they can see anything or would they send the results to my dr for him to tell me? I wish there was a cure for vancer for every1 as its always the best people that end up being poorly with it all the best to you survivors out there best wishes I hope for a speedy recovery xxxx

My experience has been that the technicians who do the scan can't say anything to you - good or bad - and have to allow the doctor who ordered the scan to carefully review and share the results with you. I know how agonizing the wait can be, especially when you're trying not to think the worse but can't help it because the mind naturally goes there. No doubt, your mom and husband are going through the same emotions and at the same time, trying to not let you see it.

Thank you so much for your concern for all of us. I so wish there was a cure for cancer too! I'll be thinking and praying for you as you await your scan.

I will just have to wait and see what happens I really apreciate you taking the time to talk to me, my husband won't show it his farther has bowel cancer and he hasn't shed a tear since he found out he dosent like letting his feelings show, I have only ever seen him cry once, but my mam knows I can tell when she is worrying, I wish I hadn't told her as she's not sleeping proply and just seems to be in a daze all the time,

You are in my prayers to all the best to you kelly! Also you other lovley women going through this bad time together I wish you health & happiness for the future ahead!

I will be intouch about monday

I'm so sorry that your father-in-law is having to deal with cancer. My husband is like your husband (and many men in general) in that he very rarely sheds tears, rarely shows sadness or fear. And your mom's reaction is understandable too.

Sending lots of good wishes to all of your family and praying for good outcomes to your scan.

Yasmin. I wish you the best and even though you sound like a lovely young lady I hope you are not eligible to join this group. This is one club where we don't want any new members. We will lovingly accept new members but wish no one else had to go through this.

Thank you sooo much! :) you are all lovley ladies! I wish you all the best with your treatment & hope you all keep fighting, as my mam says its state of mind she works in a care home & people that have dementia & have cancer it dosent affect them
