Had right ovary pain for a few years a couple days a month, then 3 months ago it was constant discomfort. They did vaginal ultrasound Monday, couldn't see ovary for mass, scheduled MRI for Tuesday, took 4 tubes of blood and I go back tomorrow for the results. Of course, I'm thinking cancer. I have had lower back discomfort, bloating, frequent urination, it seems I have most of the symtoms. I guess I just feel better discussion this with others who have been on both ends of this spectrum. I can't sleep, eat, think. I'm 47 and never been more afraid in my life. You think it always happens to someone else. Guess I'm just wondering how many ovarian tumors turn out to be something else or when the ovary is involved is it typically cancerous. Any thoughts or encouraging words out there?View Thread
