Ultrasound revealed solid mass on ovary. Vary worried.

Hi, I am 29 years old, with 2 children. In the past few months I have had several symptoms that led me to see an OB/GYN... such as excessive periods, abdominal bloating, pain to right side, frequency of urination.

I just received the results from the ultrasound that state: "I have a 4.6cm, solid mass on my right ovary, with neoplasm the primary consideration. There was no fluid in my cul-de-sac."

I am extremely scarred and worried. I have an MRI scheduled for tomorrow and blood work, however I don't see the doctor for the results until Mon. I'm not sure how long they wait to do an biopsy or what the steps are. Most importantly I'm scarred of my results turning out to be cancerous. I am completely unknowledgable about this topic, and the more I read on it the more I get scarred. Please help with anything you can. If anyone has had similar experience, please share.

Thank you very much.

It seems that you have acted quickly and this is good. No fluid is a good sign also.  Try not to worry.  You have done all the right things so far and are being very proactive with this.  My advice to you is to stop googling!  This just adds more anxiety and you rarely get the answers you need.  Good luck with the scan and the doctor's appointment - make a list of your concerns and bring them up for discussion.

I already posted this comment but ill cpy it here because i had a simullar experience

I feel your panic..i just had surgery to remove a 21cm dermoid and another 10cm dermoid one on each ovary so they removed one ovary and 60% of the there because im only 21...both came back negative for cancer i know im not answering your question but it feels good to know other people are going threw the same thing...i had a great surgeon and i feel 110% better now as they were making me very sick... i was cut from my bellybutton to my pubic bone because it is important to remove them whole incase of cancer and infection from spilled liquid i recoverd in 4 weeks and only had a coujple minor incedinces.....it wasnt a huge amunt of pain...so dont worry i was very scared too...good luck i will pray for you

YES!!  I agree with the other ladies,,, DONT GOOGLE. That was what made me sick with worry.  I had the same type of symptoms, ending up having benign endometriomas.  Only 1% of cysts are cancerous, so don't worry yourself sick.  My ultrasound also said I had two solid masses but it wasn't cancer.  Merytre

Ditto, DONT GOOGLE, stick with this site, I ended up on sleeping pills for the first time in my life I was so sick with worry for two weeks until I could get some results from my dr. However, the fear, but more so the good advice on this site, pushed me to see a onc/gyn sooner than later. I will never, ever regret that move. Peace of mind knowing a cancer specialist looked at my insides and removed my benign tumor.

Sorry, I just read the rest of your post: 'Haemmoragic' means something has bled, so Haemorragic cyst would be , I think, a cyst with blood in it. There will be others on this site who have probably had the same and will be able to fill you in, I'm sure. If you don't get a reply, go to the top and ask it again.

I forgot to add, they said my uteris is retroverted? Any ideas on what that means? All the urgent care doc said is that its not common.

A retroverted uterus means it is bending over backwards (as it were) instead of forwards, which is the 'normal' position. I have it too,have had since I gave birth, now nearly 24 years ago, and it's never caused any difficulties except occasionally when the back end of the cervix has slipped down a bit when I go for smear tests (doesn't always happen) and it can then be nipped when they put the .........(that thing they use to widen the canal??!! - is my mind going or what!!!!!!) in. I just point it out to them so they take care.Whatever else is happening to you, I really don't think you need to worry about that one.

Hi Ladies,

Let me start by saying that all of you are so wonderful, and out of all the googling I did....(even though I promise I will quit as of now)...this sight shed the most light and was the most helpful.  My entire life, the main cancer for a woman that I heard of was breast cancer. To know that there is such a supportive group of people, who have gone through Ovarian problems, and are willing to help others to the best of your abilities, is comforting and reasurring. All of your words of wisdom are much appreciated.

Last night I cried, and could not sleep because all I could think of was not seeing how beautiful my daughters were going to grow up to be. After not sleeping and worrying all night, this morning I got up and went to urgent care looking for a second opinion... or an answer. They said it was a "large complex cystic mass arising from the right ovary, most likely a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst."  and told me to check into er if it ruptured. How do I know? I still don't know what hemorrhagic means, and there's no way I'm looking it up (I'll drive myself crazy with the what ifs again). The P.A. said it is a cyst filled with blood?

My MRI got moved to the 27th and I had a blood test today. I get my results back for both on the 30th. I'm really trying to stay focused and be positive,and not drive myself crazy over the next week. I just wish they could give women an immediate answer and act right away, instead of making us wait for what seems like an eternity.

God bless, and thank you all so much for your quick replies. I feel more comforted in your replies than I did getting unknown answers from the doc's. If anyone has any knowledgeable info on hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, please let me know. On my first ultrasound I was not on my cycle, on this one I was, I don't know if that made a difference in the results?

xoxo

HELLO.

I am a 40 year old...with one child.. had a transvaginal and ultrasound because I missed two periods and then bleed for almost 50 days. doctor finally gave me depo to stop bleeding.. Results: mass in my left ovary 3.5.  My CT scan showed the same thing along with Irreg. lining of uterious.  I had a CA 125 done  score 29.9 then 50.  CEA neg.  Just took ca19.  waiting for results.  could this still be a fibroid or could this be cancer. Yes googling will drive you crazy.  My primary said I have Ovarian cancer without a biopsy.  GYN wants to run the test for the third time.  How can I get them to do a biopsy of the mass to find out for sure if I have Cancer. I do know without the tissue sample being testing with cancer is not factual. I HAVE ONE DOCTOR SURE I HAVE CANCER AND THE OTHER SAYING LET RETEST AND RETEST.  Help
thanks in advance whoever    J

I'm 20 with one child, today they found a second and third cyst that i have been physically diagnosed with but ive had the same syptoms (symptoms) that accompanied me seeking med treatment since i was 17. my doc gave me depo and said to come back in 6 weeks, but also said if it gets worse to go to the er, my pain was already a 9 out of 10, what qualifies as worse, should i pursue testing or should i wait it out the 6 weeks? i will stop googling because that is only intensifying my fear, but any answers would be wonderful
