How ovarian tumors are diagnosed Computed tomography (CT),

Hello everyone, I am 53 years old and I went to the GP in May this year because of waterworks problems; having to get up in the night to spend a penny which is out of character for me!

She sent me for ultrasound tests and they found a 3cm dermoid cyst on my right ovary. I had the CA125 blood test which was normal (thank goodness! ) I was booked in for a follow up ultrasound to check for any change in July. The cyst was pretty much the same but they also found a 4cm fibroid growing on the outside of the womb (I think this is called a pendunculated fibroid). I saw the consultant this week and she said that at my age they would need to remove the ovary with the cyst but to remove the fibroid would require a full hysterectomy because of where it is.

I have constant dull pain, feel exhausted, have lower backache and in addition to the waterworks problem have persistent upset stomach problems. The GP and consultant both feel that the cyst and fibroid are not large enough to cause symptoms but in view of my age and the fact that neither problem was present when I had an ultrasound in 2010 it would be advisable to get rid of them. I am convinced that my symptoms are caused by the dermoid cyst and the fibroid but don t relish the prospect of surgery if it can be avoided. I would really appreciate your thoughts and opinions please xx
