It sounds like you have had a careful evaluation. If you have persistent discomfort, it may be worthwhile to consider a laparoscopy. However with your normal scans, it is less likely to be an ovarian problem and more likely to be irritable bowel.
With your family history, you should ask your doctor about a referral to a genetic counselor. The question is- are you at high risk for ovarian cancer. Should you undergo genetic testing? Should you consider the prophylactic removal of your ovaries and fallopian tubes if you are high risk?
Hi Dr. Goodman,
Thank you for your advice. I will consider those options if my discomfort still persists.
I to have had the same symptoms as you exactly. I know my body and I know something is wrong. I have had an ultrasound and they then done an internal scan, I have an Overian Cyst which is 3cm and they told me I need to have another scan in 6 weeks as the Cyst has Septate. It could be Cancerous but I need to have a blood test. The Gyni said she has seen Cysts like this before and they have been Normal although when asked she said she would not rule out Cancerous Cyst.
Please do not leave it ask for the blood test and get an internal scan done.
All the best
