Hello Everyone, I'm Peggy from Ohio, I'm 53, never had children, started menopause at 38, always had awful menstrual cycles, but in november during my annual, the ob was feeling around, and felt something on the right ovary, and after speaking with me, and finding out, that i had lost about 10 pounds in the past month, felt sick after eating just a few bites, was peeing like every 30 minutes, and had really bad low backpain, plus i have a cousin and an aunt who have breast and colon cancer, she ordered a vaginal ultrasound that revealed a 1.7 cm complex cyst on my right ovary, and with the symptoms and the the family history and the fact that the cyst had a solid component to it, she sent me to a gyn/oncologist, and he requested a cat scan, and in the week between the ultrasound and the cat scan, i developed another cyst, this one on the left.but the 1st thing the oncologist said was "i don't even know why she sent you here, it's not even that big, then he asked if i was dieting and that's why i lost the weight", he said he knew my ob and knew how she ran her office, and it ticked me off, he scheduled another ultrasound for 8 weeks (this thurs) but said "if it bothers you that much, you can have her take your ovaries out" I really don't want to go back to him ever. since i've been there, i've starting having lots of pressure down low, and peeing even more than i was before. , and twinges of sharp pain along with some dull aches,and it's freaking me out.
All i'm reading is that ovarian cysts are more likely cancerous in post menopausal women, now she did a ca-125 blood test, and mine came back at 7, but she said alot of times in the early stages that the ca-125 won't be elevated, so it's not reliable.
I believe on thursday, if the cysts are still there, she is going to do a laparroscopy and take the ovary/ovaries out, especially if the one on the right has grown at all.
Any advice at all, or thoughts would be appreciated
Thanks in advance
