Hello and welcome,
I completely understand your problem.
The family history of cancer is the cause of concern for the doctors as ovarian, fallopian tube
and breast cancer
share similar genes.
If you are not willing for a hysterectomy
, you may have a laproscopy and removal of the mass for examination to rule out cancer. It may be a paroophoran cyst or a tubo ovarian mass or an ovarian cyst
or cancer. Also certain tests can be used to increase the certainty of cancer or not like CA 125, AFP and HCG
So discuss these with your doctor and get them done if possible. Though they are not 100% diagnostic but they do have a prognostic significance.
A D and C will not be very helpful in ovarian and fallopian tube growths. A laproscopy will be a much better option as the mass can be seen and biopsied or removed if needed.
So please do not worry as it is good that the mass has been discovered. Just get the tests and you will be Ok after treatment.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
