ovarian cancer question
An_223902 posted:
Can someone please help me with a question...I called my ob/gyn last week because I have noticed that I am bloated as if I was expecting my period but a bit worse. I am not expecting my period and yesterday I had some bleeding. It was bright red...not much but still alarmed me. I have none so far today. My breast have been tender since before my last period and I have felt nauseaus a few times. I am urinating more and have some mild lower back pain, I am not pregnant for sure because I had an endometrial abalation and just in case I took 2 pregnancy tests. My question is if I had a transvaginal sonogram a few months ago is it possible that they will give me another one. I know I have a fibroid but it was very small. I am wondering if things can change within a few months. My grandmother died very young of ovarian cancer and I am worried. I would love to hear any feedback. Dr appt tmrw Thanks a lot!!

Hiya and welcome,

Gosh anything here would be guessing.
I'm so glad you are seeing the doctor tomorrow. Share your symptoms and concerns with him/her and please let us know what they said! I hope you feel better. I'm hoping this is just nothing to worry about.
