RE: Message 7/12/05 Symptoms of WHAT?!?! - Ovarian cancer?


I have gone to see my GP (again!), and this time I got some possible answers. I was diagnosed with a spastic colon at an early age, and therefore we know that the current sypmtoms are above and beyond that. I am supposed to go for a CA125 bloodtest, as she wants to rule out ovarian cancer. I have done some reading and, although I know that these symptoms can also be from any other condition, it frightens me that I have ALL the symptoms for advanced stage mentioned in all the articles read. The articles also state that the CA125 test does not give a very accurate diagnosis and should be coupled with a transvaginal ultrasound. Where can I find out what the costs involved would be, as I am financially in deep poo but know that this is important to do....

A vaginal scan would cost about R300-600
