Ovarian tumors

Posted , 3 users are following.

I found out today I have ovarian tumors. It will be 10 days for medical tests to come back.

Have a trip planned in 10 days and it is a 5 hour drive. Would I have any problems being in a car that long? I could lay in back seat as my boyfriend will do the driving

    Yes, you should be fine.

    Did they tell you what kind and how big?

      Tina, I would not think you would have any different symptoms than you're having now (if any). The cysts are not extremely large so the only thing is maybe more frequent rest stops. Just don't overdo.

      No it's not dumb.

      A cyst is a sac that may be filled with air, fluid or other material. A cyst can form in any part of the body, including bones, organs and soft tissues. Most cysts are noncancerous (benign). Although cancers can form cysts.

      A tumor is any abnormal mass of tissue or swelling. Like a cyst, a tumor can form in any part of the body. A tumor can be benign or cancerous.

      So basically something that doesn't belong. Most cases benign do don't panic.
