what type of cancer did you have?
are you in remission from that cancer?
How big is this mass?
So you are saying the mass when away when you got the CT scan?
hiya i have ovarian cancer and they removed everything 14 years ago and ater they did a ct scan ib feb i got a phone call 2 weeks ago telling me they found a mess at the top of my vigina and they have sent me for a m r i, they said they couldnt feel anything but its there
okay so this is SMALL then?
dont know but when i went for my m r i scan the lady who did it was upset
ive beeb having loads of pain
I understand people and you are concerned and upset - but let's try to stick to facts here
so you do not know the size, but you are in pain in this area?
my stomach is like a football
my pelvis legs stomach bowels hurt
was this like this Prior to the CT scan/ MRI and is that why you got the scans
and sex is a no no
okay - let's try to stick to facts here
so when did this pain start?
When did you have the scans?
they sent me ib feb for a c t scan because i was losing weight and stuffer from verigo, i had my ct in feb they said it was fine then i got a phone call 2 weeks ago saying it wasnt they made a mistake
you mean vertigo?
the pain as got worse this past month
yes sorry dislexic
okay - what type of ovarian cancer did you have?
How were you treated for the ovarian cancer?
it was a cyst to start of with them it grow to a size of a orange , so they removed everything so i have nothing left
okay - that is not what I was asking
I am asking What TYPE of ovarian cancer was this -
did they just tell you it was cancer even though it was just a cyst
dont know,they never said sorry
did you have chemotherapy?
did you have radiation?
okay then did NOT have a cancer
you just had an ovarian cyst - but not a cancer
if you had ovarian cancer and just received surgery - and you are still alive (which you are) and did not receive chemotherapy and radiation - you did not have a true cancer.
they said ,after i had a 125 blood test they found out it was
okay - a few things
If you had true ovarian cancer you would have had chemotherapy (loose hair, etc) and radiation
CA125 is NOT a test for cancer.
so GOING back to the pain then
with a mass you have on this CT / MRI - this could be a cyst of some type
lower back pain to
and hence what Is needed to be done - you need a CT guided biopsy to figure out what this 'mass' is
can u get cysts without a womb
Yes you can -
this is in the vaginal area - so this could be a vaginal cyst
bloody things , lol
Yes I know
so I strongly suggest getting seen by a VERY good ob/gyn who actually does pelvic reconstruction - since you have already had a hysterectomy already
i am seeing a dr at the hospital down here ,i ont like them nuch they keep making mistakes with me , can these cysts make u sleep a lot
well the sleepiness is not from the cysts
but you might have some anxiety and fear from this - and hence making you very sleepy
i am so tied all the time
but cysts themselves will not cause you to sleep
Also, since you are 51 - that in of itself can be a causal factor in making you feel sleepy too
something is wrong u know, i know my body , an i dont feel right
I know -
Well first step first
you need to get this area biopsied - usually guided with the CT scanner
I would suggest getting your thyroid checked too - you might have a low thyroid - causing you to be sleeping
ive aged so much this last few weeks i look terrible ,ive god bags under my eyes and look like the walking died
that is because you are very anxious about this
but first thing first -as I have explained about...
Get this biopsied
Get your thyroid evaluated.
Also, get checked for blood pressure
your blood sugar should be checked
So ALL things that you should Normally get checked -
i suffer from high col
these things are not usually a cancer - but something simple
so talking tabs for that and my blood presser is low
lol am i boring u
I have answered your questions...I see you have been making statements.
I can help you with your questions
but like I have said
you should get this biopsied
you need to get your thyroid checked
you should get the routine things done too - because many times a routine physical will find what is really wrong.
and this mass or cyst might not be anything concerning
thats for info , hope this scan tomorrow will shed some light on it , wow c t scan m ri scan now this other good night kind dr and thank u
I wish you well
