    I was diagnosed last month with a complex cyst in my right ovary and will have the ovary removed in three weeks, along with a small uterine polyp.  All lab tests, including CA 125, hormone levels, and other cancer markers all came back normal and was relieved to hear "low risk" for cancer.  I know the fear that you are feeling, but it does help to remain as calm as you can and hopefully all will be well!  Do you have any lab work in progress?

      Please please please do not worry this is just normal procedure my cysts increased I had 3 every scan showed an increase and more solid parts more septations and even mural nodules ?! I had an urgent Mri and it showed endometriomas and deep endo everywhere else !!! The ca 125 is not that high you think it is but its not and it can be increased for many reasons inflammation cysts even endometriosis,menstruating it is not a reliable test.my dr said he would not even be concerned if mine was over 100 and even my friends over 100 turned out to be endometriona cyst. please message me if you are worried xxxx

      Of course you are me too as I had the mri to check for ovarian cysts and they found a nodule on my balder which now needs to be investigated so I get relief over one and now have another worry it's never ending !!!where do you live vero? You will be fine it's caught if anything very early in your ovary I have endometriosis and that alone can cause a high ca 125 as does many other things including infection inflammation periods and even ovarian cysts xxx
