You have provided me with good information.

You have undergone endometrial biopsy and CA 125 and you are awaiting results.

Had OB doctor say that I shouldnt need to bleed somewhat heavy during periods, I didn't think it was a big deal. She said you need to keep your blood. She did ultrasound, vaginal one as well. Found fibroid, cyst on ovary and polyps. Said I can choose to have hysterectomy, one ovary removed, all removed, or do D&C and ablation and monitor Cyst for 6 months.

I chose to do D&C and ablation on 2/13/13. 3/1 Ultrasound done again to review after surgery.
Golf ball size cyst on ovary is now somewhat larger since found on first ultrasound on 1/18 and so I need to pick from options again. All out - uterus, ovaries, etc. or just one ovary or some combo of items.

Did CA125 blood test on 1/21/13 and it was elevated, about 44. Have history of ovarian cancer, maternal grandmother. Mom and aunt all removed, hysterectomy, ovaries, etc.

When my 2/13 Surgery was done, she said I had more polyps in my uterus than she has ever seen in thousands of cases.

My follow up ultrasound post surgery shows irregular cyst on ovary a big bigger and now I need to choose surgery options again.

What would your advice be??


Thanks for the query.

I went through your detailed history with diligence.

It would be better to opt for hysterectomy with removal of ovarian cyst and perform a frozen section examination of removed sample.

In the presence of some family history of ovarian cancer this seems to be the right...
