Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Chocolate cyst is a benign (non cancerous) and doesn't cause much problems. The problem with chocolate cyst is it can cause pain and there is chance for rupture. In case of rupture laparoscopy may be needed. Ovarian cancer is not common in young age and you can detect it by doing blood test like “CA-125” which can be done from almost every laboratories.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello. My friend may have ovarian cancer. Her parents had kicked her out and she can barely afford an apartment and food from her job. Not only that, but it s a seasonal job and she may barely have enough in winter. She can t pay for treatment and refuses to go in unless there was a way to either postpone payment or even lower the payments. She has no where to go and is in pain constantly. Is there somewhere where she can go to get proper treatment and pay less.

I recently cut out all sugar and have cut down on carbs from pasta and bread. Still, I am 35 pounds overweight and almost all of it is in my lower and now upper abdomen. I m worried that I have some fluid build up in my stomach that is causing such severe bloating and weight problems. My mother had breast cancer at age 37. Should I be checked for ovarian cancer?
