Hi there, discovered (Ultra sound) 2 weeks ago that Ive a lg grapefruit size cyst on 1 ovary, a smaller -6cm on the other & some smaller ones too. Consultant says he thinks borderline or grade 1. Not sure but Ive to have CAT TAP (thoracic, abdominal & pelvic) scan. It's €500 & VHI only cover it if I'm an oncology patient -so I guess I'm not officially YET -so Ive to pay. Also I'm worried about telling (adult) children who are away- the upset & worry for them. Any observations -suggestions welcome .
