Re: Afraid it ovarian cancer
I have heard that CA-125 tests all not all that accurate of a test for ovarian cancer. I have read that even when they are low, that you can still HAVE ovarian cancer and even when they are high, you can still NOT have ovarian cancer. They are just used as one of many tools for making a diagnosis. So, do not worry too much, until you get further test results on other tests!
I had a CA-125 test last year and it was low, as in negative! But, I still feel like I may have ovarian cancer or some other lower abdominal growth or problem.
Do you ever have lots of gas? I do. That is one of the symptoms of ovarian cancer. And the trouble was, the last vaginal ultrasound I had done, about 2 mo. ago, did not show my ovaries, because my bowels were full of gas!!! So, I will probably have another one done after the first of the year. Just need to take gas X or have a mostly empty bowel?!
What is a LAVH? And if you care to answer, how old are you?
Take care and try not to worry too much. Ya right?!
