ovarian cancer fear!!!!!
« on: December 28, 2013, 10:04:01 PM »
I went to the dr last week about some upper right quadrant discomfort I'm having.  She thinks it's an ulcer (I'm awaiting the H.pylori results).  Anyways I also asked about ovarian cancer, because I've had nausea and bloating.  She offered to examine my ovaries, and upon doing so she said she could barely even feel them.  But, the right side was slightly tender to me.  She offered a pelvic ultrasound since I had tenderness, so I'm getting that on Monday.  I'm very worried it's ovarian cancer.  I asked her if it could cause discomfort so high up in the abdomen and she said "sure, referred pain".  That was no help to my anxiety.  But, is that even correct?  If it were ovarian cancer, wouldn't the main area of pain be near my ovaries, and not up high near my ribcage?  I do have some lower groin area discomfort, but nothing extremely painful. 
FYI, I'm 33, healthy (supposedly) and still have regular periods.

At your age it's very unlikely. You might have an ovarian cyst (just like me!). They are very common and can cause the symptoms you are experiencing.  Best of luck with your U/S on Monday, I'm sure you'll be fine.

I would say it's definitely more likely to be a cyst at your age. Cysts can do that. Mine caused me tenderness and pain as well.

It is most likely a cyst, considering how young you are. I'm a medical student, too, so I know that statistically it's highly unlikely that you have cancer. Don't worry until final test results come out, as the odds are in your favor :).
