I'm 19 and I had ovarian cancer last year. I had a tumor the size of a foot ball that was covering my ovary. But they caught it before it spread anywhere else, I lost one oary but I am cancer free.My question is will it come back?

a tumor the size of a football? For it to be that size wouldnt it need to be in the later stages of the illness?
You're only 19? Wow.. Thats terribly young. You're bearly even an adult. I didnt think that was even possible.
My mother died of ovarian cancer when I was ten congrats for passing it up, your in my prayers for your chance last year. Im amazed they were able to save your other ovary considering the size of a football tumor would put you almost at risk of getting it again. Let alone I would of thought it would have been touching the other ovary...My prayers are with you, as for the others who think you may have cancer, its a simple check with your gyn, if your worried and concerned and in pain and freaking out, go have labs run, get an u/s done, get a ca-125 done, there are things to be done to reassure you that you do not have cancer, and more than likely like me have pcos or endo and your periods are just wacked out and running on estrogen timing or progestrogen and wacked out hormones and ovarian cysts that need to go away!! Lol...We all stress out during our cycles which will trhough our bodies out of wack, we over eat sleep and exercise or under do those things wich in turn throws our bodies out of wack as well....So please check with your doctors and tell them whats been happening and check into your family history and record your menstral cycles and let them know about your problems, and yes talk to your parents about the possiblity of birth control for the sheer fact that it could potientaly help your hormones and decrease the risk of of harmful diseases!
I am 45 and have been having trouble the last year...3 weeks ago I had some test and an ultrasound and today the doctors office called me and told me they found something on my left ovary they are concerned about...I have to go have a catscan and another test at the hospital thursday morning...I was wondering what your symptons were...I have had some severe bleeding and clots...Sharp pains in my lower abdomin ..My periods were very regular for years and last only about 4 days....But the last year they have very irreagular and severe cramps where I haven't had cramps in many years..And they are lasting 10 or 12 days at a time....I am even having 2 peroids a month sometimes.....I feel very blotted all the time....Even when i'm not on my period.... Can you tell me what symptons you had before you were diagonsed
Request a ca 125 test from your gyno!!!!!!!!!! This test could literally save you months, years of your life. My mother got it taken too late but she still lived for two and a half years after being diagnosed. Get it done! It is only a blood test. 35 or below is norma. It is not 100% accurant but it is something to start with. Take care
