Felt a large mass on my lower abdomen

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi! I'm new here. 4 days ago, i felt a large mass in my lower abdomen. I'm scared it's not fibroid. But back in 2012, when i was pregnant with my first child, I also felt a bigger mass on my abdomen which was a fibroid. Surgery was discussed if it continued growing. Fortunately after giving birth, the fibroid got smaller. When i was pregnant with my second, no one mentioned about my fibroid and i didnt really thought of it. Now, this mass that im feeling now is kinda like the fibroid i felt before but im scared its ovarian cancer as im feeling more symptoms - bloating, sometimes nausea, frequent urination, pelvic pain and pain on the stomach. My GP said its very likely that its just a fibroid. The earliest schedule for the ultrasound that I can book is Feb 19. This waiting makes me so stressed.

    Hello Joy,

    Oh, that must be stressful, but hang in there! Your test is now just 2 weeks away. In the meantime, there are lots of different fibroid experiences on this site, so you may find comfort from finding out if other fibroid sufferers have similar symptoms. There seems to be a lot of variety.
