okay so i'm 17 and pretty terrified at the minute.
tonight, while i was taking a shower, i noticed this odd bruise type of thing right where i guess my right ovary would be, except it's obviously on my skin.
it's like a bruise i guess but it's not particularly painful. i mean if i press really ******n it but i haven't touched it and it looks like it's gotten worse in the last hour.

could this be some kind of cancer? it runs kind of high in my family and i'm really scared. there is no lump or anything..just a reddish purple bruise type of thing.

thanks if anyone has any information.

  • i'm afraid to sound IGNORANT since i'm no doctor, but i've had bruises before & it came from anemia--just needed to take an iron supplement. hope that's YOUR case. can't say for sure though. always good to have it checked to be sure.

  • it is difficult to imagine a cancer which would present like this.stop worrying.at this point there is only fat snd muscle under your skin,then some intestines,before you get anywhere near your ovaries.take dudbubbins advice ,i am increasingly impressed with her contributions.
