My mother is 66. She had stage I breast CA 10 years ago, underwent a mastectomy at that time, took Tamoxifen for 5 years, and has had no signs of recurrence. Last month she started experiencing more severe back pain and had a pelvis U/s done as part of the work-up. This showed a 1.5 cm complex cyst on her R ovary but the radiologist did not comment if there was any free fluid or other abnormal findings. L ovary is normal. CA125 is normal (no change from 5 years ago). She is seeing Gyn-Onc soon and I'm assuming that she will have her ovary removed, and possibly a full TAH-BSO. Is there any hope that this could be benign? (she has no other classic symptoms at this point).
Thanks so much for your help.
