Together we will beat cancer

Hello had a scan and a mass was found on one of my ovaries so I have to

go and seea Gynecologist next week. Dr said it looked hard on the outside and

said it could be anything such as a bowel problem or just a benign cyst. However I am

now really worried its cancer. Does the fact it looked hard on the outside indicate it

could be cancer or is it more likely to be a benign cyst?

Hi Musiclover,

Welcome to Cancer Chat, although I'm sorry to read about your worries. Unfortunately I'm unable to advise on your question - it's always best that answers and medical opinions come from a specialist who can advise appropriately and specifically to you.

Try not to worry about what it could or couldn't be - although I know this is easier said than done. I hope you don't have long to wait until your appointment, and then you can raise any questions or concerns you have.

If you would like to discuss anything with our nurses, you can reach them on 0808 800 4040 (Monday-Friday, 9-5). Please note they're unable to diagnose or give a medical opinion.

Wishing you all the best and do feel free to let us know how you get on, if you would like to.
