Questions Ovarian Cancer

Last reply: 14 September 2017 16:50

Hi since the last month, my wife has been feeling symptoms similar to the Ovarian Cancer described on the website, we went to the GP and got a referral for a Gynecologist, after this the doctor indicate she has cystocele and the bladder is prolapsing a bit, and small cyst on the ovary and he recommended to start with some exercises in the mean time we get an appointment for the Physio, for the Cyst he recommended an contraceptive pill.

however she's been feeling very worried due she has the symptoms very similar to this cancer.

do you have a recommendation of what to do?, currently we are planning to go to another doctor and explain our case, and request for the blood test CA-125.

Thank you very much!
