The symptoms of ovarian cancer are vague, and that's what makes it scary. They include frequent urination (check), change in stools and digestion (I have horrible digestion - gasiness, all kinds of messed up bowels, etc), pain in the abdominal area or sharp pains where the ovaries are located, check. I also have random uterine cramps. I also have weight gain, and bloating. Ovarian cancer is one of the most deadly cancers.
I wish these things didn't exist. I wish people didn't like to live their lives, me included, being scared of these things. I would feel so at peace if cancer didn't exist.
I did go to the gynecologist. What she found, and this was several months ago, was an ovarian cyst. We did a second ultrasound, and she left me a voicemail saying the first cyst was gone and a second has taken its place. She wants me to take birth control pills, do a third ultrasound, and maybe get surgery to have some tissue removed for diagnosis. She didn't sound urgent, but the fact she wanted me to even do that surgery - does she suspect cancer?
Can you tell if its a cyst or tumor?
I didn't go back because the first two ultrasounds were expensive and I still haven't paid the bill off (working on it). But I want to to check one more time, even though I'm scared. I'm 23 years old. I wonder what the possibility would be, of me having ovarian cancer... =/
My body is really unhappy right now. I'm a health freak too, so its upsetting because I try my best to take care of myself.
