Is using the 'Risk of malignancy' index useful
I have seen something about Doctors using the RMI equation to work out your chances of a tumor being malignant. I am fretting as mine works out at 327 and I have read that anything over 200 is likely to be cancer. Can anyone offer any info?
Perhaps someone on the Ovarian Cancer forum would know more? You may want to join that community as well to ask questions.
I am not familiar with how medical approvals work in the UK. Perhaps your doctor is just trying to get documentation that will get you approved for surgery. He/she is just trying to make sure you get attention. That is my take on it.
I will be thinking positive thoughts for you. Please keep us informed. I do want to hear that this all turns out to be benign.
Thank you so much MarieMichele for answering my worries on this and my CA125 result. I am a worrier and this waiting is very hard. I will take on board what you have said and I will tell my husband who is very worried too. Thank you so much for being there and for giving very sound advice.
I will let you know how I get on.
