Ovarian growth
I went for a scan and they found a 4.2cm abnormal growth on my left ovary. I had a historectomy 11months ago. I am seeing a specialist on Thursday but just need to know what to expect. Can this be cancer and what will they do? Please I am extremely nurvous and very stressed about this.
