Re: Cancerous cysts?
The reason that they told you that if the cyst is cancerous, it would be a borderline malignancy is that if the thing has not changed or caused problems in four entire years then if it is (absolute worst case scenario) malignant, it would be a type of cancer that moves very very slowly (ie. becomes borderline cancer and then cancer over a very long period of time). This means that your absolute worst case scenario is that you have a completely treatable cancer that is totally contained. Most likely the cyst will be benign like so many are. Try to think on the positive side rather than on the negative, especially since in your case, the positive is the most likely to occur (most ovarian cancer occurs in menopausal women). Think how wonderful you will feel after having the damned thing out and when they tell you everything is fine and you won't have to schedule that next ultrasound and worry about what is on it ...
Here's to a quick and painless procedure that will take the load off your mind once and for all. Don't forget to ask the anaesthesiologist for an anti emetic if you have a tendency toward nausea (as most premenopausal women do). This will keep you nice and comfortable after surgery.
