I just went through an ovarian cancer scare last year. Had a 11 cm cyst, another smaller cyst, ovary , Fallopian tube removed. It turned out not to be cancer but I too put off the symptoms. There is a reason it's called the silent killer. I am sure like me you will be fine and you will feel so much better.

Dee, just wanted to say that I'm also thinking about you and that I've missed your posts here! And sorry, but did you just say teeth?!?!

Dee, thank you for posting this, a lesson to us all to watch out for changes which most of us do put down to getting older etc etc etc.

I wish you the very best, and hope that the results are good, it is good that you are tackling this now, the sooner the better - hugs to you xo

Thanks girls, I'm ever, ever so pleased this is making you think about your own baby making factories, if not now, down the track when you "feel" something is ary you'll act!

Yes Krystall, I certainly did say "teeth" - the body is a bizarre thing. I saw one tumour cut open, it looked like a huge abalone (a shell fish similar to an oyster but huge, not sure if you guys call them that) and it had heaps of long black hair inside of its hollow centre. I often wonder if the body thinks it's going to make a baby without the necessary sperm & loses the plot a bit.

LS I can't really say how long the symptoms have been there, except I know I've been sleeping 18 hrs a day for the last 3 years at least and, before that, I would take a couple of weeks off occasionally to just sleep but then head back to work.

The fat belly has been for a long time, but only really distended for probably the last year - I have to keep asking friends how long I've been moaning about different major symptoms. I do know for the last 6 months I haven't been able to wear or buy normal clothes.

The hard part is that the symptoms creep up on you and you remain oblivious to most ... irritable bowel, urinary issues, and because they start out slowly as these things are growing and then get slowly worse & worse as they grow you really don't notice them and just learn to live with them. Whoever said it is a "silent killer" was absolutely right because you have no idea these aliens have taken up residence & are building a little village.

I would, if I had my time over, just have an ultrasound every 2 years. These darn things are prone to returning after you have them removed, in the same or different spots and if they're only cysts, then that's fine. They have meds that help with keeping them at bay, even simple things like the pill. However, it's not until you have a hysterectomy that you can put a stop to all cysts, growths, tumours and masses in that region, and then you get the issue of having to have Hormone Replacement Therapy, in which breast cancer risk follows. In certain stages & with certain growths, after removal, chemo is not effective and some build up a resistance to it anyway. I will NOT be going down that road regardless. It's a very complex & individual problem from one woman to the next, but ALL woman should demand constant surveillance even without symptoms imo.

Dee, you are a courageous lady - your spirit shines through from your posts!

After my husband was diagnosed, I went to my doctor for a check up and scans - at first they refused, as I'm young and healthy and didnt have a good enough reason etc but I didn't back down and had an all over body check. I intend to do this every 2 years.

Dee, so sorry to hear about this. I had a feeling that something is wrong. You would even post if you didn't feel that good and I always enjoyed reading them! Don't go away again. We are here for you and love hearing from you. Even though you are going through a tough time right now, I love reading your posts!

And yes, we do always put ourselves last. And as we get older we are less inclined to take care of ourselves for some reason.

I wish you all the best!
