Re: Ovarian cyst/Pre cancerous cells found..
Actually I would go one step further and consult with a gynecological oncologist and not just a gynecologist. The G.P. will most likely give you a referral to this specialist at your next appointment.
The next step will depend upon how much they removed. Since they removed the cyst, then the pathology will tell them if they managed to remove all of the precancerous cells. If they had precancerous cells within a whole bunch of normal cell tissue then most likely you will not need further surgery. If they believe that they did not get everything then they may want to go in and take further tissue out or even the entire ovary, just to make sure. They may also take a biopsy of your remaining ovary to make sure all is well.
Keep in mind that precancerous is not cancer. It just means that the cells were not normal tissue but something else. You should consider yourself EXTREMELY lucky that they found this at this stage .. even before any cancer occurred. This happens very rarely. Also, these "borderline cancer" type cells usually grow very slowly (unlike the most common form of ovarian cancer) so a full cure is most likely a definite thing for you.
Be sure to keep an eye on yourself, even after you have been treated. Perhaps a regular CA-125 test (a blood test) may be in order. Ask your doctor about this.
Don't be afraid to ask questions to your doctor (especially the gyne oncologist) like what type of cells these are (how close to cancer are they ... some cells end up remaining borderline forever and never change to cancer .. these types of cells are less threatening) ? are they fast growing (even non cancer cells can grow quickly) ? were all of the precancerous cells taken out ? do I have to have my ovary or ovaries removed ? will this treatment being recommended take care of everything (whatever is recommended) ? do I have any other options and what are the risks associated with these ? what are the chances of my getting ovarian cancer in the future with this treatment (whatever it is) ? what kind of followup do I need to do after the treatment ? etc.. With borderline cancer cells, usually removal of the cells is a full cure and no chemo is necessary. Keep in mind that if it is recommended that you have the removal of both ovaries, you will go into surgical menopause and may need some kind of hormone replacement therapy (ask about this).
I hope I have managed to help you rather than to scare you. You should be extremely glad that this was found out now before a real problem occurred. Just make sure that you see the correct professional to be sure that you are following the proper course of treatment and that you take care of this potential problem completely. You will be just fine.
Take care of yourself.
