A few weeks ago I had a ct scan done due to an abdominal mass I felt near my spleen.
When I got the results there was no mention of that mass being detected, however I do have 2 cysts on my right ovary about 2 inches by 1 inch for each of them.
I am currently constipated, gassy, tired, and finding more masses/lumps. I have the same one by my spleen, one around my liver area, one to the left of my navel, and a lump in my right breast. They are all painful but not consistantly. It's like they flair up and hurt sometimes, then at other times I hardly know they are there.
Both of my ovaries hurt, my lower back hurts, and I am feeling pressure. As of tonight I am also spotting a bit, but my period may be due. I am not sure as I just started birth control 1 month ago and haven't developed a real pattern yet.
My gyno assured me that I didn't have ovarian cancer, just based on the ct scan, my age, and no family history. She refuses to do a ca-125 test. I have an appt sept 15th with another gyno, I am hoping this one with investigate further.
I went 8 years without a menstrual cycle, was diagnosed with poly cystic ovarian syndrome, and have only had 1 pap in my life. My lack of cycles was due to an event that happened to me when I was around 12. Someone stuck an object inside of my vagina, and it remained there until I was 20 years old. I was too scared to get help or tell.
Surgery was done to remove the object, it gave me blood poisioning and my organs began to shut down. I had about a week to live had I not went in to have surgery they told me.
Now with these cysts, and these painful masses I am finding needless to say I am frightened. I should have stayed on top of things once that object was removed however I did not.
I am 24 years old, 5'11 tall, and 350lbs. I am wondering if my masses would have been hard to detect on the ct scan because of my weight. I figure though that they would have been able to see my lymph nodes, and if I had cancer there would have been an abnormality. There was also no mention of abdominal fluid or anything. The scan was abdominal, and pelvic.
So am I ok? A worry wort, or what? Someone please help. My biggest fear is that I do have ovarian cancer, that it has spread all over, and I am in the later stages. I would imagine that I would feel much worse however if that were the case, but I don't know.
