Hi…not really sure which category best applies to my question, but am trying to find out how common it is for fibroids to develop into ovarian cancer.
In my case, I don’t think I had fibroids, or if I did at some point, I wasn’t aware or diagnosed with it. I was diagnosed with Clear Cell OC in January. Now recovering from surgery and 6 rounds of chemo.
Unfortunately, my daughter had unusually heavy bleeding during her period this month and was sent for an ultrasound. A 3.5cm fibroid was identified. Her doctor suggested a “wait and monitor” approach, which my daughter was not comfortable with, given what I went through. She now has an appointment with a gynecologist – a month from now, barring any Covid delays.
I did have genetic testing done, which was negative for BRCA. I was so relieved at the time, thinking that my daughter wouldn’t have similar issues. However, we’re all very anxious now. She was looking forward to starting a family soon.
