So So So So Aggravated

Whew...Okay... Where do I start?

December 2002
TAH to treat microinvasive cervical cancer. Preserved ovaries(attached to insides somewhere, I think sometimes they are in my lungs!LOL)

November 2001
US detected large adnexal mass on left ovary, complex, septated mass showing blood flow. Back to the table, removal of mass and left ovary. One doctor says totally benign, another says it had a malignancy potential. ?? Okay.

July 2002
Pap results-ASGUS or whatever the hell they call it.

November 2002
Nipple discharge from right breast. Mammogram-Nothing. Breast ultrasound finds complex cystic area containing septation on outer portion of right breast above nipple. Ultrasound guided biopsy-still awaiting results.

November 2002
Follow up pap, still awaiting those results... had manual exam, dr finds a mass on left side, recommends ultrasound...iieeesssh

What are the chances of something recurring on the left side if there is nothing there?

I never had an abnormal pap until the October 2000 pap that showed CIN lll, which turned out to have microinvasion. Months prior to the abnormal pap, I experienced tons of "female problems" the family planning clinic I had been going to recommended a pap since it had been exactly a year since I had one. The last pap I had prior to the "bad one" was fine. I am a big nag to all my friends GET YOUR PAPS YEARLY! As mine went from normal to crap in one year. Anyway, again for the last several months I have been having REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT bacterial vaginitis, just as was happening prior to my diagnosis in 2000.

I am nervous as to what this "new mass" could possibly be. Any suggestions......

Geez, you sure have been through alot in the past two years.
I hope your breast biopsy comes back okay!!!
As for the pelvic situation, I highly recommend you seek the advice of a gyn oncologist. One doc said your left ovary was benign and the other doc said it was low malignancy potential. Perhaps a third pathology opinion is needed. Johns Hopkins has a great web site where they also give instructions for that second pathology opinion. You need not go in person. Just have your slides sent there. Hopkins is really tops in the pathology of these type tumors.
I hope you proceed with that ultrasound and perhaps even a CAT Scan of your abdomen and pelvis. There is a lab test (ca 125) but it often proves useless with low malignancy potential tumors.
Please keep in touch and know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Here is a link to the Hopkins pathology site:
