Q: 

Scared, and need HELP...please!

In March, 2011 I had a 5cm mass in my uterus, and several neoplasms and probably cervical carcinoma. There was also a 3 cm mass on my ovaries. My doc took out my uterus and cervix, but kept ovaries in, since I was only 42...and they wanted me to have as many natural hormones as possible. Two months later I was in complete ovarian failure. FH, LSH is 61 and 71 respectively. Now....I have had abdominal pain for 30 days, and 20 lbs weight loss (without trying, and during christmas) and last night developed rectal bleeding. The pain was so intense, I went to ER. They found a pelvic mass that was 9.7cm X 6.4 cm. This was NOT present prior to my initial surgery...so in my opinion, fairly rapid growth. I am scared, and really think this may be cancer....any input?

Hi Anon,

It's important for you to sit with your doctor and talk to him about your results and how serious can this mass be. 

Best,

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Not always a tumor found in the pelvic area is cancerous.  Depending where your doctor tells you it's located and what type of tumor it is. For instance, Uterine fibroid tumors are almost always benign. These benign (non-cancerous) tumors are found in most cases, in theuterusof women in their 30's and 40's.  Fibroid tumors are solid tumors which are made of fibrous tissue, hence the name 'fibroid' tumor. It might be good to ask your doctor.
