Hi I'm looking for some reassurance really... here is my storey:
I was pregnant with my baby girl and at my 12 week scan the found a 7cm cyst on my right ovary. They monitored the cyst during pregnancy and told me I would have a follow up 6 weeks after giving birth as it is a complex cyst. Anyway my daughter is now 10 weeks old so in the last 4 week I gave had a CT scan (which shows no spread of disease but I have not been told much about the actual cyst). My CA125 was taken and is 59. I saw the consultant today and she sounds very kean to get rid as the recent scan shows it's now 11cm. She said if may be borderline, cancerous or benign but she wouldn't give me any more information until it's tested after surgery as she said she didn't want to cause me worry. I'm 25 by the way so I have read ovarian cancer in my age is unlikely so it's more likely benign or borderline?? The consultant said she will also be removing my right ovary along with the cyst and will be testing the fatty layer of the abdomen. I am just so worried I don't want to die and leave my baby girl. I'm already upset as going in surgery means I need to stop breastfeeding and get her on bottles which she is not taking well too it's all so much stress. Has anyone gone through this and it's come back benign? I have read borderline is also a concern so I just really want this to come back benign. The surgery doesn't bother me at the minute as I just want the cyst out and tested and the worry to be over. Any advice here would be really appreciated thanks
