Freaking out....

Hi everyone..... 

I went in yesterday to check IUD placement and ended up having a vaginal US.  My OBGYN found a 3cm mass on my left ovary, and an 8cm mass on my right.  The right was his concern due to it's size and my family history of breast cancer (mom)  I am BRCA negative, so is she.  Surgery to remove is a definate but he did a work up to prepare.  Now I am freaking.  CA125 was abnormal at 99, but HE4 was 49 (normal is <150)  Waiting on OVA1 test.  My brain is going crazy.  I am 44 and have 3 children and an amazing husband I need to be here for.  I cannot breathe. 


Thanks for listening.

    Hi Shawn,

    It's a very good sign that your HE4 is normal.  Your CA-125 could be elevated just because of the cysts being there and may not be related to cancer at all.

    Please let us know how things go.
