Ovarian calcium deposits
SZeagler posted:
I've been diagnosed with ovarian calcium deposits and wondered if anyone else had experienced this diagnosis. The 2 doctors that I've consulted recommend at the minimum that I have them removed, or have a complete hysterectomy. They can't tell me if I definitely have cancer from the ultrasounds and blood tests. All tests done have come back negative including uterine biopsy. I had a CAT scan 2 yrs ago also. My Mom had dementia and also a very early hysterectomy. From what I've read, experts think there's some connection between ovarian removal and dementia. Thanks for any information!!

I just came across your post. Did you end up having a hysterectomy with ovary removal? Was any cancer found?

Hope you're doing well!

Had second surgery in July - 3 new tumors found and now on 6 infusions of chemo. Had partial hysterectomy years ago and 3 years ago had ovaries removed. Both times cancer was found and my symptoms were the same, stomach swelling, abdominal pain and extremely tired. Outlook very good won't need any more surgeries but I will have to go on a chemo pill to keep cancer in remission as long as possible before another go round of chemo infusions. It appears I kill off all cancer cells but 1 or 2 and they go dormant but will become active again.
Have you had to deal with cancer or with a loved one who has cancer.

So sorry to hear this! But good that your prognosis is very good! I personally have not had cancer. But my gyn removed my uterus and both ovaries after discovering a cystadenoma on one ovary that had a very small chance of being cancerous. Despite a benign frozen section, he and two gyn residents removed everything. My body hasn't reacted well to this physical and emotional trauma! No one in my family has had breast or reproductive cancer.
