Go to the Doctor
Even if it turns out to be nothing, you will have piece of mind. And if it is something, you will catch it earlier. I will be having surgery in a couple of weeks to remove my ovary, which has a mass on it. I keep thinking, what if I had gone to the doctor sooner with my symptoms????
