    Ovarian Cyst found on mother which may be cancerous...

    6 weeks ago my mum had problems passing Urine.
    We spent around 8 hours in the hospital and finally they put a catheter in which helped.

    The hospital then sent her away with advise that she would be passed onto Gyne for further tests.

    Long story short, comms were poor and we had to chase up appointments and finally 2 weeks back she had a ultra sound scan.
    The results were given to her yesterday and they have found a ovarian cyst.

    The consultant has refered her to an urgent CT Scan which will happen within the 2 weeks.

    I am considering paying for her and going private.

    What should I do? I am really worried and hoping its nothing serious.
    The catheter has still not been removed....

    I would simply keep following up. Most ovarian cysts are benign, so I wouldn't panic. But I wouldn't ignore any of it either.
    Diagnosed with stage 2c papillary serous cystadenoma borderline malignancy of the ovary in 2009. Hysterectomy, omenectomy, appendectomy, debulking.
    - 2010 - laparoscopy showed inoperable recurrence, so started chemo.
    - Frontline chemo - carboplatin and cyclophosphamide, six cycles
    - Additional chemo regimens: Avastin - ten cycles; Weekly Topotecan - 4 cycles.
    - Spring 2012 developed pleural nodules. Topotecan plus Avastin - 1year.
    - April, 2014, had surgery to remove Aspergillus infection from right lung.
    - September, 2015, started on Megace because my tumors are PR positive. Stopped Megace after three months.
    - September, 2016, hospitalized for shortness of breath and back pain.
    - September, 2016, respiratory failure reversed with prednisone. Maintaining on 50 mg Prednisone per day and supplemental O2.
    - October, 2016 left hospital with no supplemental oxygen. Feeling great! Will start tapering off the prednisone Oct. 10.
