Missed periods and ovarian cancer

Hi!  I am 48 yrs old and healthy but haven't had a period now for almost 4 months.  I have always been very regular and normal.  I guess I'm asking to see if sudden absent of your period at my age could be any sign of ovarian cancer?  I have an Aunt who died of that and four Aunts two on each side of mother and father side of family who had breast cancer.  I know I'm probably going through perimenpause but until then was very normal.  Thanks for dedicating your time to help others try to understand a little before having to make an appt. at doctors.

I am not the doctor, but I will tell you that my only symptom was a missed cycle for 2.5 years.  My doctor was treating me for PCOS, which I did not have :-(...it was OC.  

There may be another explanation for what is going on with you, I hope so.  You are wsie to seek advice, counsel...don't quit until you are comfortable.    I would ask for a ultrasound, and a CA125, although CA125 does not detect all OC it picks up some.
