Hi - I have been dealing with reproductive organ issues for years. I am 28 years old. I was diagnosed with endometriosis at the age of 22. Since then, I have had a tubal ligation and an endometrial ablation due to extremely heavy and painful periods. About a year ago, I started to experience some lower abdominal pain that, at times, made it difficult to function. The pain would literally stop me in my tracks. So, I went to my ob-gyn for an ultrasound. That u/s showed a minimal amount of free fluid in my pelvic region and a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, measuring 2.6cm. A few days ago, I started experiencing the same pain. I went to my local ER, where they performed another pelvic ultrasound. The findings were as follows: 1. There are two subendometrial cysts identified within the uterus. They have slightly increased in size since my last u/s done by this hospital in December of 2013. 2. Possible soft tissue mass adjacent to the right ovary versus a non-peristaltic loop of bowel measuring 2.0cm in greatest diameter. There is also a complex cystic area within the right ovary measuring 0.7cm. 3. Complex cyst within the left ovary measuring 1.4cm in greatest diameter.
I have a family history of ovarian and breast cancer. My grandmother passed away at the age of 68 due to these cancers. So, of course, I am terrified! Should I be worried about these findings? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
