I am 59 yr. old female with family history of cancer mother uterine cancer, father prostate. I was diagnosed 4 months ago with microscopic hematuria, had an ultrasound of bladder and a cystoscopy at a major hospital--all of which showed no evidence of bladder cancer. Since then, I have noticed rapid girth gain and recently major upper and lower abdominal swelling. I have no pain, no palpable masses, no uterine bleeding. I have no appetite and have insomnia and anxiety. I had a CA 125 one year ago that proved normal <5 and a vaginal ultrasound to check for ovarian cancer that proved unremarkable. I have regular colonoscopies every 3 years, annual pap smears and mammograms,and blood profiles. I am postmenopausal and experience dyspenuria for several years. I am currently under an extreme amount of emotional stress--could this be the reason for the abdominal swelling? How fast can Ovarian Cancer grow to present ascites? I have an appointment with my OBGYN in 10 days--should I rush it or will 10 days make no difference?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
