Thanks for the encourgement to press forward for a second opinion and get copies of my reports..Uterus on US shows fibroids with endo lining hyperechoic, thickness .65 cm. Rt Ov complex mass-cystic and solid/cystic 2.5x1.6x cm2.6. Lt ov with same appearance-complex cyst 2.7x1.7x2.5 cm. no free fluid. I guess this is what "ugly ovaries" means. All info has gone to Dr. at a cancer center. I have an appointment on Friday to see him. Wish me the best.

Smart Move!

You have done well getting things moving with a second opinion. There is no such thing as "ugly ovaries" andthis doctor will hopefully give you more correct information and a plan. Ellen

Getting the actual info instead of that vague and (IMHO) unprofessional description of your ovaries must be a grand relief! Best wishes on your consultation with the cancer center!

And please remember to give us an update. I'll be thinking of you.

Second Opinion

Doc had another ultrasound done. Left ovary with septated ? cyst with intermediate blood flow. He said 25 to 30% chance of maglignancy, BUT the only way to know is removal. Anyone out there been there? What did you do and with what results?

seven weeks ago I had two large masses removed from my ovaries. Everyone thought I had advanced ovarian cancer, I had all the characteristics of it. My gyn would not do the surgery so she sent me to a hospital in Chicago. Although the gyn/onc would not speculate on the cancer until surgery, he did prepare me for a possible colostomy. One tumor was 15cm the other was 20cm and I had adominal fluid all common with advanced ovarian cancer. I came out of it with borderline cancer in one ovary and no futher treatment necessary, only monitoring. So these are things you never know about until surgery. My advice to you is just try and relax. Just think of it this way you have a 70 - 80 % chance that its not cancerous and thats good odds.

take care Patty

What I'm concerned about

I think I'm more concerned about it NOT being cancer. I can justify a surgery for a borderline malignant pathology, but it bugs the daylights out of me that in this day and age the only definitive diagnostic procedure is surgery. I told the doc that they don't treat men's testicles they way they treat women's ovaries. However, he does research as well as clinical and is working to develop a better diagnostic marker. Family is not comfortable with waiting so I'll call Monday to get things scheduled. Thanks for your support.

I agree, womens health issues are far behind men's, but thank God that times have changed or we wouldn't have what we do now.
