I am 60 and was diagnosed with a large ovarian cyst on Tuesday after a routine scan on my gallbladder. The cyst is 8.7cm x 5.5cm approx 31/2 inches by 21/2 inches) I had a CA125 blood test on Thursday afternoon because, although most of the cyst looks to be fluid, there is a solid part to it too (but don't know the result yet). I am really worried about what is going to happen to me, whether it is cancer or not, but also how the operation will be done with such a big cyst. Could they still do this with keyhole or will it need to be the bigger operation?
My doctor has referred me to the consultant as urgent to be seen within two weeks, but she is now on holiday until Tuesday so I cannot talk to her..
Has anyone else been in a similar situation (especially at my age)? How did they do the operation and what did they remove, just the cyst, the ovaries as well, or more? How long did it take to get over it?
I would be very grateful for any information anyone can give me please?
