It is normal to worry over our health. Don't let lack of insurance keep you from taking care of yourself any more. Get help from social services if needed and take care of yourself. I know that waiting on results is no fun. I do it every month. Keep pushing the doc until all of your troubles are diagnosed and treated. Good luck to you. Marie
Please don't put away this time, especially when your grandmother was die of OVCA. Please fina a GYN/oncologist if your are not seeing one. Have had a ca125 done? You may want to have one if don't have yet, also want you to know elevated ca125 doesn't mean you have OVCA, but most OVCA patients have high ca125. At least to rule out OVCA and focus on enlarged uterus and abnormal PEP
Where are the other masses the found from US?
Also want you to know the final dx of OVCA is from biopsy.
yes i am seeing a gyn , and i dont know where my tumors are located , he was callig them fibroids but last mediacal notes he states masses not fibroid tumors . and i had an endometrial biopsy done wed. so i waiting on the results, and in 2wks he is doing a colpscopy on me . thank you for concer and answering my post !
