I'm really happy to have to found this forum and hope someone can gve me some reassurance or help with coping with this. I had a bout of really bad abdominal pain in Feb this year which was accompanied by severe constipation. That resolved after a few day but when I went to the loo a few hours later for a wee I got a really sharp pain straight down from my belly button. Again, after a day or two this improved but didn't completely clear up. Long story short after a few weeks I went to the doc who thought it was a UTI. I took a course of antibiotics but when the pain persisted I went back. She was brilliant and examined me- couldn't feel anything out of the ordinary but thought to be safe I should have a scan. I had this last Tuesday and last Friday found out I have a complex cyst on my left overy. I also had a CA125 blood test (other tests the doc did when I went see her the second time were all negative) This test showed raised levels and so now I'm booked in to see a consultant next Friday. I'm in the prime danger group for a malignacy as I'm 5 years past the menopause at 61. The thing I don't understand is that between seeing the doc the second time and now virtually all my symptoms have completely gone. I do have a bit of discomfort where I now know the cyst is but that's all. I guess I don't have long to wait until I find out the worst, and I'm not really afraid of an operation if it needs to be done. I guess its all come so fast and I'm finding it really hard to deal with, and although I'm trying to keep positive I do dread it being cancer. Sorry to have rambled- searching the net this late at night is never good- there are so many sites telling me things I don't want to hear! Thanks
