Tamoxifen + new complex ovarian cyst + ca-125 test
I am a little freaked out about my Gyno wanting me to take CA-125 blood test due to new complex ovarian cyst that formed in last 6 months. I already have one that is 2.6 cm that they have been watching with ultrasounds for the past year and that one is unchanged, but now I have a new one that is 2.4 cm in size in 6 months. Both cysts are in the same ovary. I know tamoxifen can cause cysts but can they go from no cyst to complex solid 2.4 cm in 6 months, the amount of time I have been on Tamoxifen? His office called today and said they will fax order for test and to go tomorrow to take the test. I mean the orginal cyst was just being monitored and I was never told to get a CA-125 test before. I was never tested for the BRCA gene. Dr is recommending I have a laproscopic hysterectomy. I know having a hysterectomy will be good for me due to 90% ER postive, but I am scared of that means to me in other ways, plus I had a horrible horrible time coming out of anesthesia during lumpectomy. Anyone else have this problem?
