    I didn't know about my cysts until i saw my gyn doctor i had gotten an ultrasound that is how they found out. Are u having abdominal pain. I hope it isn't that serious. I just had my left ovary and tube taking out because of the cyst it was enlarging.

    I have been told I may have a cyst on the left ovary and she was asking me about endometriosis in the family?! 

    Anyway now have to wait for doc and maybe a gynaecologist referral.

    Very vague at scans at scans aren’t they?!

    If you have a cyst, they will tell you at the scan. Raised CA125 can occur due to many reason, not necessarily malign. Even ovulation and menstruation can cause it, or an infection in your body. The scan should shed some light on this issue.
