Im 34 and was diagnosed with pcos when I was about 23.
I went to my ob/gyn last week complaining of low back
Pain and pelvic pain. After testing my urine and doing an
Ultrasound she said that I do not have a kidney infection.
However I do have a solid mass on one of my ovaries.
It is about the size of a golf ball. She is waiting after my
Next cycle to see if this is just a pocket of blood or if it is
Something else. If it is still there she is going to remove it.
What is the chance that this is something serious?
I've started my period today. This is for sure one of the most
Painful periods I have ever had. I have tolerable pain on my
Left side where the mass is. But it is pretty intense.
It is always better to remove solid masses in the ovaries. Histo-pathological examination will help make the diagnosis and rule out anything serious like cancer. Also CA 125 levels can be done before the surgery.
Hope this helps.
