I am 41 years old. I had blood tests approximately three months ago, which revealed a CA125 of 33. I made an appointment with my gyno, who repeated the CA125 and now is at 127. I had a vaginal ultrasound the following week, which revealed a cyst inside my left ovary. A doppler was performed and no blood flow to the cyst was revealed. I have an appointment with MD Anderson and am terrified. Neither of my parents had cancer (father died of massive heart attack at 53, mother died of end-stage renal disease at 64).
I have a history of endometriosis, with numerous laparoscopic surgeries to assist, as well as Lupron Depot treatments following. I gave birth to twins ten years ago.
I am terrified...absolutely terrified.
