20cm Borderline tumour removed and now suspected one on other side
In 2011 I had a large tumour removed along with my left ovary and Fallopian tube, because I haven't had any kids (am 37) the surgeon suggested conservative approach and if it was possible to leave other ovary so I could have a family if I wanted. Anyway to cut a long story short I have had a cyst looking thing 1.5cms on my other ovary on every scan I have had, my doctor/gynae kept saying its normal to have cysts that come and go but now finally last week is saying it could be another borderline but won't remove until it gets bigger. Also brought up the issue of kids, I didn't want to feel pressurised to get on and have them and told gynae man last week I didn't know if I wanted them or not and was still on depo. Since then me and partner have decided I best get on and try to have them now while I still can.
My question is, is it possible to get pregnant with a borderline tumour actually on your ovary? I know it won't happen for a while until depo is out of my system but wasn't sure if I can get any medical help or do I need to get eggs frozen incase it's destroying my ovary and eggs? Or would ivf be an option before it gets bigger and I need hystectomy?
