pale skin
I was diagnosed with a rare ovarian cancer a year ago, had a tumour the size of an orange and an ovary removed. No further treatment.  I have regular scans and CA125 tests.  So far, no recurrance.  I am very worried as my skin is very, very pale and some days my cheeks are yellow!  Can you suggest what could be wrong?

Hi There
do you know the name of the tumor that was removed?

As far as skin
you should see your primary care for an evaluation. There are many possible reasons for skin changes including anemia

Hi There
I did a search of skin and Sertoli Leydig cell tumors.
I do not see any correlation with pale skin.
Here is a symptom list that is in general related to a high testosterone level.

This is from:  http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/s/sertoli_leydig_cell_tumors/symptoms.htm

Increased facial hair --

Increased libido --

I would suggest you meet with your primary care.
You need a check for anemia and also  for serum testosterone levels.
Ask your Primary care if a dermatology consultation is appropriate
best wishes
