Could this be cancer?

When I went for my last checkup, the Dr found something on one of my ovaries. He said that it was hard. He said that he was going to point at it. I had the worst pain that I have ever been through. Since I have three kids that is saying alot. It continued to hurt for the next three days. I hurt evertime that I moved. Of course, it was the weekend. On Monday, I started my period and the pain seemed to go away. This is the first time that I can remember ever feeling better when I had my period. The Dr also changed my surgery from a LVH to a TAH. Does anyone out there have an opinion?

s Julie

I think you definitely need to get more information from your doctor. You need to know why the plan was changed to a TAH as opposed to the LVH. If he expresses any concern at all about that ovary, you should probably have a few more tests done preoperatively. Blood work called a ca125 and a vaginal ultrasound. If these tests show any suspicious results you need a different doctor to perform your surgery.
I do think palpating ovaries can cause discomfort. Perhaps that is what is lingering for a few days.
But since you expressed concern over your ovary, I would addresss your questions to the doctor before surgery.
Let us know how you make out!

Just wanted to let you guys know that I appreciate you getting back to me so fast. It is a very nerve wracking time with just two weeks until my surgery.

Thanks again Julie

I can't add a lot to the suggestions Karen made. I would urge you to discuss any concerns with your Dr, give them a call if you have questions that need to be answered before your pre op appointment.

I would also recommend making a list of any of these questions and bring along a tape recorder or someone to be another set of "ears". Its very easy to miss everything that's said.

I wish you the best and hope that this turns out to be nothing to worry about. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

I'm sorry I don't know your story or why you were having the hyst, but if he even has the slightest inkling it might be cancer, get thee to a gynocological oncologist if he isn't one!
