    I know how you feel! But try not to worry.my first surgery for my last cyst I had raised ca125, it can be raised for other non concerning reasons. Wow that is a large mass! I thought my latest was at 13cm...I am waiting for another surgery...full laparotomy again 😔 your CT should indicate the type of mass it is also..I had to have mri and CT ad this mass has vascularity which really worried me but the scans have indicated another cyst...

    Hi, I've recently been diagnosed with a 12.2cm Dermoid Ovarian Cyst on 23rd Feb. I was admitted for 2 nights for ultrasound scans and CA125 blood tests. Some bloods came back normal but I was discharged before the rest were back. Was given a note saying they were requesting an urgent MRI scan then an Urgent follow up with my ob gynecologist to discuss MRI results and to plan surgery. I had my MRI scan on 17th March but was told both my consultants were on holiday so it will take up to 6 weeks before I hear from them!! This is supposed to Urgent!! Seems a bit long to me and my GP who's worried about me. I'm 50 and I get a lot of severe pain. Coping by taking Zapain painkillers but they just take the edge off. Wason Morphine in hospital. Has anyone else had to wait 6 weeks for an Urgent follow up appointment? Just want this thing out and to start feeling human again.

    I have surgery on Friday - I'm very nervous!

    I have a 14cm "very complex" cyst on my left ovary 3 3cm cysts on my right ovary and my CA125 was almost 1000!

    I had urgent CT and MRI scans and if it is cancer my surrounding organs and lymph nodes "look clear" but until they have removed everything we won't know for sure.

    On Friday I am having my left ovary and cyst removed, both Fallopian tubes, they are removing the cysts from my right ovary and taking biopsy's from inside my womb. I am also having a "peritoneal washings" to check for cancer cells.

    I wanted them to take everything but as I'm late 30's they have refused. They said if the tests after the op show cancer they will go back in and take my right ovary and womb. They won't to do it yet and send me into menopause if it's not cancer.

    I am in a lot of pain from my cyst, I can't sleep on my left side, I'm very bloated (I look 6 months pregnant) it hurts to bend over, I need to pee all the time, I get full very quick and can't eat much at all. As much as I want to get this thing out of me I am very nervous about Friday.
