Together we will beat cancer


Scared have Ovarian Cancer

14 May 2019 20:38

I have been having pain in my left had side and lower abdomen for months but in last few months my stomach has been really bloated and sore to touch? I had my gall bladder out two years ago so just thought the pain was related or possibly IBS but further symptoms have happened in last few months, painful sex, slight bleed after sex. Also excess odourless and watery discharge down below. I’m scared to go doctors in case they tell me it is cancer? Can’t talk to anyone again as scared?

Hello Kazie and thank you for your post.

I can appreciate that you are scared. But, I am afraid that we are unable to tell you if there is anything the matter. So, the best thing to do is to go and see your GP and ask to see a female doctor if you think it will be better for you.

Your symptoms are not necessarily serious or to do with cancer. Unfortunately searching for a possible diagnosis is not going to take the place of seeing your doctor.

I hope this has been of some help to you. Please get back to us if you need any more information or support.  You may find it helpful to talk things through with one of the nurses on our helpline.  The number to call is Freephone 0808 800 4040 and the lines are open from 9am till 5pm Monday to Friday.

Take care,
