A little back ground info on me, I am 27 and was got diagnosed Dec 2011 with a rare pancreatic cancer. I have my CBC's done every 3 months for the next 6 years. Good news, no signs of cancer coming back. Bad news, my oncologist says I might have developed ovarian cancer. I have had a mass on my right ovary for close to a year. Over two years ago my gyno did a hysterectomy and left both ovaries. Due to the constant pain, 6 months after, I had my left ovary removed. So, now all I have is this right ovary. I have many symptoms including, stomach pressure (at all times--like someone is sitting on me), bloating, lower back pain, lower abdominal pressure, slight discomfort in right thigh (reminds me of RLS), fullness, lethargic, constipation, and nausea off and on during the day. My CT Scan showed a complex mass of 27.91 x 23.20 mm on my right adnexa. Also, I have enlarged periaortic lyphm nodes measuring at 15.75mm.
My gastro. oncologist wants me seen within a week or two, although, the gyno. oncologist doesn't have anything available for three weeks! So, I'm silently freaking out. Any help or advice would be great!
I would ask your PMC (primary care manager) to refer you to your gyno, so that he can perform a few tests on you. Your gyno can feel if you have a cyst or perform a vaginal ultrasound and get a better look. I would ask to have a CT Scan to detect a cyst. I have similar symptoms, except i don't have upper pain and I have a few cysts on my right ovary. It's mighty painful. I did have similar symptoms when I was pregnant the first time. Make sure you tell your gyno about your concerns and I pray you get relief.
