Hi, I had an ovarian cyst discovered on March 11 while I was in the hospital for something else. I am 50 years old. It took a while to get a gynecology appointment, and then they wanted to run tests and that took more time. The gynecologist says it looks like endometrioma. But he says there is a chance it is cancer because my Ca-125 is low but borderline at 32.
I am referred to a oncologist. My appointment is 4/20. I don't know when I can have surgery after that.
Should I worry that so much time is passing? I thought these things have to be treated right away.
