Re: Test to find out if it's cancer?

Hi Candymint,

The first thing you should do is go to your gynocologist. Then he/she will do a physical and can then send you to get a vaginal ultrasound. That is read by a different doctor and the results are sent to your dr. Then, you will either be told, that there is nothing wrong, or will be tested further.

One of the symptoms of ovarian cancer, is lots of bleeding - much more than normal. So when you go to your dr., tell everything that has been going on!

Good Luck

Wannabe
