Hi everyone I'm 31 (no kids yet) and have been diagnosed with a large cyst about 21cm (8 inches) across on my right ovary. I look 6 months pregnant! I saw the cancer gynaecologist last week who explained she thinks it is a "large, benign, mucous cyst". Still need CT scan results to confirm fluid-only (no lumps in it) but obviously good news that specialist thinks it's not cancerous.
The BAD news is that she said I would now need to be re-referred to benign gynaecology, and that they have a wait list (here in Gloucestershire) of 16 weeks. 16 WEEKS!? I'm already huge and in pain! Ahhhh!
Does anyone have experience of this? Either of being re-referred to benign (do you need to start at back of queue again?), or waiting to see a benign gynaecologist with a large cyst (do they prioritise those of us with big or painful cases)?
