Customer Question

I'm 35. I visited my GP today for a medical and explained that I've had a pain in my abdominal area to the right of my navel when I press it for the past year. She said its my ovary/bowel area and that it could be an ovarian cyst. She has referred me for an ultrasound. As a hypochondriac (!) im now extremely worried and wondering if there's any chance at all this could be ovarian cancer?! Thanks

Thanks for this question

ovarian cancer is super rare

and even more rare at your age!

cysts are super common and even more common at your age

unlikely to be cancer.

I would be shocked if it were cancer
