Large Ovarian Cystic Mass

My doctor found a 10.7cm x 9.8cm mass and a walnut size mass in my pelvic region that he feels is cystic.  The blood work he did for tumor markers was 7.8 and 0-3 is normal.  He feels they are most likely fluid filled. I am scheduled for surgery in 2 days and am wondering if I should be as terrified as I am.  I had a hysterectomy due to a "bad" pap smear about 19 years ago. They left my ovaries at that time.

Please try not to be scared.  Easier said than done I know.  do something to help you relax (long, hot bath, pedicure, etc).  Are you pre-menopausal?  If so, the markers may not be accurate (assuming it is like a CA125).  It is good that the doctor thinks the cyst is fluid filled.  Usually fluid filled cysts are not cancerous.  Your surgery date will be here befoe you know it!!  We are here to offer you support and advice.  Do you know if you are havinag surgery done laprascopically or by laparatomy?  Good luck and please keep us updated on how you are doing!!

Thank you. I believe it is laparatomy.  They are cutting me from breast bone to pelvic bone due to lots of scar tissue from previous unrelated surgeries.
