Just before Christmas I discovered a lump below my belly button and to the left. I went to see my GP straight after the New Year and he has referred for blood tests including the one for Ovarian cancer and an ultrasound.... both of which I am having tomorrow. Frankly I'm frightened. I've mostly always been in good health and fit. I'm 70 and still go to Keep Fit and Zumba classes and walk the dog for an hour every day. My GP initially thought I had a urine infection but I insisted he felt my belly and when he did his face changed. He was obviously worried and that has made me worry even more I'm trying to keep positive but it is hard. I realise it could be something other than ovarian cancer but I can't help thinking the worse.
What happens at the ultrsound ? Is it like when you have pregnancy one over your belly ? And how much information will it give the doctor ?
Will my GP then refer me to a specialist at the hospital and how long will that take ?
Wish there was more information.
