Try not to jump the gun here. Although, I am sure you are plenty nervous. I recently had a suspicious mammogram and went for several tests. The waiting drove me crazy. It was nothing, thank God.
On your GYN appointment they will examine you internally and decide if there is anything suspicious that they can palpate on exam. They can also draw blood for a test called a CA125 that is a marker that determines if there is cancer in your blood. Often, this test is the only test that can find ovarian cancer, so if the doctor doesn't bring it up, you should. Some insurances do not pay for it as a routine blood screening, but with your history, you probably would not have a problem with that.
Remember, they have found a "complex ovarian cyst" to use your words. No reason to go thinking it is cancer. It may be just a cyst.
Some other advice to you is to write down your questions before you see the doctor. Once you are there, you may forget to ask certain things. We all do that, so make a list and write down what you want to say so you don't forget. Also, bring a pen to write down what the doctor may tell you. This often comes in handy if he or she gets technical and gives you too much information. Just slow him or her down and write down notes to look back on.
Last, but not least, come back here and post to us how your dr's visit went so we know. I want to know, that's for sure.
I will say a prayer for you. Good luck and relax!
