If your doc is careful he will never say benign if there is some even remote possibility of cancer later. That is the way i practiced anyway. I hope whoever said that to you is careful!. Always be vigilant watching it! ...Read more

Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?

Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer.
