Terrified of ovarian cancer please help!
« on: January 23, 2014, 02:15:08 PM »
For over a month now I have been having all the symptoms of ovarian cancer and then some! I have had a pelvic and transvaginal ultrasound which are normal but I read that these can be ineffective at finding ovarian cancer until the late stages. Please help me I am 23 and convinced the doctors aren't worried because of my age- but that can cause them to miss something! I am going crazy please help!

Been there, several times. I had IBS like symptoms (weird stools, pain, gas), twinges of pelvic pain, and just knew it was OC. Went to the dr for a ultrasound and it was clear. I did that two years in a row. Had the blood test for the cancer marker and it was normal.  I finally figured out it was in fact IBS. It sucks. I know. I am only 33. I am on breast cancer now. I found a small something that is different than the other tissue. No history of BC and the characteristics of the lump don't point to BC. Still scared out of my mind.
