Scared, could this be ovarian cancer?

For the past week I have been having lower back pain and pain in my lower abdomen area. The pain comes and goes and can vary from side to side. I have the coil fitted so no longer have periods and limited period pain. The night before the pains started a lump appeared behind my right ear which is possibly a swollen gland. Now I am convincing myself the two are linked and this could be ovarian cancer. I have an appointment to have blood work done tomorrow. Anyone any words of help? These are my only symptoms.
Thank you.

Re: Scared, could this be ovarian cancer?

It actually sounds more like an infection. It is not uncommon to get a pelvic infection with a coil or loop. As to the lump behind your ear, that is not usually a sinister lymph node to come up. That is more likely to be reacting to an Infection as well. Good luck for tomorrow. Sera
