Thank you for the advice, I am going to see a gp today or tomorrow to try and get some answers about the ultrasound. Hopefully knowing a bit more will help me worry less. I appreciate your reply, I'm sorry to hear you've been through so much, I hope things get better for you. Best wishes.

Hey everyone. Long story short I'm awaiting test results. I'm not entirely sure what or why but I'm being testing for cancer in the uterine/ovary area. The gyno didn't tell me anything and I haven't slept or eaten much in a week and I still have three weeks till I see him to get the results. I tried to be seen earlier but no good. I can't stop worrying, I'm making myself sick and I'm convinced I have cancer that has spread. The thing is I know worrying will only make things worse, but I can't stop. Especially since I have almost no information to go on. So I'm wondering if anyone has any tips to help me stop thinking (obsessing) about it. I keep thinking that if I do have cancer this could be my last few weeks for a while of being able to feel "normal" and I'm wasting it. And if I don't have cancer I've made myself a sick nervous wreck for no reason. I'd love to hear how other people managed the scary feelings while waiting for results or after a diagnosis. I don't really really have anyone to talk to so I'm feeling very alone.

Thank you for your reply and kind words, I'm trying not to worry but it's hard since I'm a worrier by nature anyway. I just wish I could find out for sure what's going on, everything feels so uncertain right now.

Hi, I hope it's ok to post this question there. I'm freaking out big time so just quickly joined to post a question. I had an ultrasound done a couple of weeks ago to have a look at my vagina because a have a bladder prolapse, they did an internal ultrasound as well. I went back to my gyno last Wednesday and he said they found some things but he's not sure if I'm having symptoms, he said to get blood tests and then we might do a biopsy. I asked if it was serious and he said well that's what we'll find out and then he sent me on my way. I asked when having the blood tests what they were for and basically they were all for cancer. I can't get into my gyno for another three weeks and I am a mess. Can't sleep, can't eat, can't concentrate. I am so confused as to why he's even testing me for cancer. The ultrasound results were as followed- the myometrium is inhomogeneous with a small cyst within the anterior myometrium. The endometrium is homogeneous but there is a tiny cyst within the lower endometrium that measure 2.4mm and a further area of poor delineation of the jun tonal zone within the mid portion of the anterior myometrium and endometrium. Within the posterior body of the uterus there is a 9mm intramural hypoechoic solid lesion sonographically suggestive of a fibroid. Both ovaries are identified, the right is of normal size and appearance. There is a collapsing corpus literal cyst within the left ovary. The adnexa is unremarkable. The vagina vault is unremarkable. The conclusion suggests a repeat ultrasound in 10 weeks and mentions it may be adenomyosis. Does anyone understand this ultrasound and why the dr has sent me for cancer tests? In not sure what part may indicate cancer? I'm 35 years old with a 17 yr old and 9 yr old. I did have unexplained clear discharge and pain during sex around 4 years ago but I had ultrasounds and testing and it came back clear. I have no bleeding in between periods but a couple of my period were heavier than usual last year and now they are lighter than they used to be. I do have cramping all month long. I am convinced I have had cancer this whole time and it has spread. I have had some aches and pains lately and haven't been feeling great. I'm sorry to ramble but I am already planning my goodbyes in my head. I actually feel like I'm going mad and I'm
Not sure if its intuition or if I'm over reacting. Any advice on the meaning of the ultrasound would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
