Hardened Left Ovary in an Intra Vaginal Ultrasound

Had a period with lots of pain (3xHours) in my left ovary. Went to my
OBGYN did ultrasound and found L / Ovary was hardened. Wants to schedule an exploratory Laparoscopy. Is this Ovarian Cancer?

Re: Hardened Left Ovary in an Intra Vaginal Ultrasound

Hello Ibia,

What exactly did the doctor see on the ultrasound ? Was your ovary calcified ? Calcifications sometimes do occur in the ovaries but I have never heard of "hardened ovaries" before.

The surgery is probably a good idea under the circumstances. If your ovary is calcified it does not necessarily mean you have cancer but it would be a good idea to get a biopsy to be sure that it is nothing of concern.

If you can, get a copy of that ultrasound report and have a look at it. It will give you more details.

I hope your surgery goes well. Take good care of yourself.
