complex ovarian cyst with clear free flowing fluid
I have been diagnosed with a complex ovarian cyst on my left ovary, a week ago, that measures 1.4 x 1.6 x 2.3. I have free flowing fluid in my pelvis as well. My doc says it is not an endometrial cyst, and my fluid is clear so it is not the result of a burst cyst, unfortunately. I am to f/u with another u/s in 4 wks., and I am waiting for my CA125 results. I am 41 yrs of age, and have 2 boys, 11 yrs and 20 mos., and both my grandmother's had ovarian cancer, my father's mother died of it. My mother had endometriosis so severely that she had to have a full hyster and part of her colon out in her early 30's. I am mostly concerned about this "free flowing clear fluid" that accompanies the complex cyst. My doc says not to worry. I've decided to get a second opinion from a gyno/oncologist that was rated one of the best docs in Dallas. I am looking forward to this appt. However, I am driving myself crazy with thoughts of cancer, and/or having my ovaries taken out at 41! I'm not ready to go thru the change :-( I wanted to know if anyone else has had similar dx with this free flowing fluid, and what was the outcome?
