Re: worried I have ovarian cancer

From what I've read, just your plain-old-everyday cyst can cause the same symptoms as ovarian cancer. Please know that ovarian cancer is very, very rare.

I try not to worry until someone tells me to but I do seek answers. I hope you ladies find out what is going on.
