6cm septated solid mass on r ovary. Told hysterectomy is needed. How long should I wait to seek second opinion? How urgent is it to act upon?

6cm septated solid mass on r ovary. Told hysterectomy is needed. How long should I wait to seek second opinion? How urgent is it to act upon?

Seek Options: It's premature to schedule hysterectomy (removal of uterus) for a solid 6 cm ovarian mass. It may be benign (teratoma, cystadenoma, endometrioma, etc) versus malignant. Ultrasound can give info to grade these risks (nodules, septations types, etc) but cannot diagnose cancer. In fact, only tissue bx can DX cancer. Consider ovarian cystectomy vs oophorectomy, lsc vs open, & discuss with your gyn. ...Read more

My ca125 levels are slightly elevated and there is a solid mass on my ovary, should I be concerened that it is ovarian cancer?

My ca125 levels are slightly elevated and there is a solid mass on my ovary, should I be concerened that it is ovarian cancer?

Depends: Ask your gyn. A solid mass is concerning, but your age, menopausal status, and the ultrasound characteristics are important as well. Elevated ca-125 suggests ovarian cancer, but may be somewhat elevated in many benign conditions, as well, including endometriosis. All of this needs a discussion with your gyn and a possible referral to a gyn oncologist - who are the real experts in this area. ...Read more

Please help, solid mass found on my ovary. :( what is the liklihood of cancer?

No guess work here: A solid mass in ovary can be cancerous. So it should be removed and examined by a pathologist to determine its nature. It may be benign or could even be cancerous; only the pathologist, by doing a microscopic examination, can define its nature/cause. ...Read more
