I am hoping someone has some insight for me as I am making myself a nervous wreck. I had an oopherectomy in 2006 because of a large ovarian cyst. I just recently started having some pelvic pain and went in for a transvaginal ultrasound where they found a mass where my removed ovary should be.? They also saw cysts on my other ovary, but I am most concerned about the mass where my ovary was. Does anyone have any words of wisdom for me? I am only 37years old so I know the odds are in my favor that it is not cancer, but then I start to think of all the young people that are diagnosed-the chance isn't 0, you know? Please help, I'm scared...
I've heard of ovarian remnant syndrome. Occasionally a tiny bit of ovarian tissue can be left behind and then that will act up just as a regular sized ovary does. It doesn't mean cancer but it can cause problems and pain. What are they planning to do next?
