My OB/GYN told me two and a half years ago that I had a small ovarian cyst, less than 2cm, nothing to worry about. Well. I went to the ER this weekend in horrendous pain - CT, CBC, and two ultrasounds (external and internal) later - I was dx with a possibly ruptured complex ovarian cyst measuring a whopping 6.5 x 5.1 x 4.3 cm (with low level internal echoes).
That wasn't particularly worrying - though I did start to think about my slightly increased risk of breast cancer (had a scare for that summer 2019). Then, I also read the CT report.
Hypodense nodule in the spleen
Hypodense (>1cm) nodules in both kidneys "likely cysts"
Hypodense nodules throughout the liver - too small to characterize "likely cysts in the absence of a known primary"
That worried me. They suggested a follow up in 6 - 12 weeks, but my doctor wants me in on Thursday.
I guess I just wondered others experiences of something like this? If you found out you had cancer, what was your journey to dx? Were you lucky and found out it was "just" a cyst? Did your complex cyst resolve on its own? is there a risk of cancer if you have complex cysts?
Thanks.. I have so many questions
