Hello, I’m a 23 year old woman. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 17, and had surgery to remove a 13 pound cyst in my right ovary when I was 18.
I’ve always had irregular periods so I was put on birth control to make me regular. It worked on and off for a few years up until last March, ever since then, I haven’t had a single period.
In July, I went to to the doctor with terrible abdomal pain and cramping, but I was assigned a nurse practitioner. I was told that I had a thick endometrium, and had a biopsy done the same day. It took three different times because she couldn’t collect any tissue, she said she didn’t collect a lot but that the amount that she did collect would do. Fast forward to a week later I had a transvaginal ultrasound and a CT scan a day after that.
After that, I was told that the biopsy results were normal, but that I have a tumor in my uterus and a cyst on my right ovary, again..
I know that they said my biopsy results were normal, along with the ca125 blood test, but something inside of me tells me that I have some sort of cancer. They tell me that I’m too young for these types of cancers, but honestly.. cancer doesn’t discriminate.
They haven’t even mentioned the tumor in my uterus which is another thing that concerns me. They’re more focused on removing the cyst rather than addressing the tumor, which is just beyond me.
One of the main reasons that I’m having so much anxiety is because cancer runs on my mothers side of the family, and I also have every single symptom of ovarian cancer, and every symptom of endometrial cancer minus the heavy vaginal bleeding and being post menopausal. I’ve lost 38 in two and a half months because I can’t even eat. I literally went from over eating every single day to eating a few bites of food a day.
If anybody here is around the same age and has these types of cancers or is worried about the same thing please reply to this!
