I've had pain thru the summer and thru an ultrasound, I've just found out I've got a 10 cm x 10 cm complex mass on my left pelvic area and multiple fibroids on my uterus. I worry that it could be cancer but I'm taking all the necessary steps my doctor suggests but am still worried about things. I would like to hear from anyone who has gone thru this and if you would share what had you done.

Are you in the care of a GYN?
You are saying you are taking the necessary steps your doctor suggests...does that mean a recommendation to a GYN/Oncologist? Chances are you do not have cancer, but, if the chance is there you want the experts on your team, these doctors have 3 years additional training over OB/GYNs...and statistics have proven that if there is cancer, the survival rate is higher when operated on and treated by a gyn/oncologist.
