Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

About 6 months the gynecologist found a lesion. When I went back, that lesion was gone but another one had appeared. The gynecologist took a biopsy (it seemed he went deep because it hurt and bled for 2 days!) I haven't gotten the results back but I am worried. I have ovarian cancer, granulosa cell tumor (rare) so I am worried that maybe it has spread, even though it usually doesn't spread to the vagina. Has anyone had this experience? Thanks! Dee

Good to hear from you and hope you get good news. Weren't you diagnosed as Stage 1A? I haven't seen much about it spreading in that particular area. Are you going to be at the Granulosa Cell Tumor Foundation conference in Boston in April? I hope you will be there.
I went to the Oncolgist today for my second round of inhibin A & B tests. Should get the results within a week.

Hi! I think the same thing; usually does not spread to the vagina. It is weird. I am a little bit worried because I have had two lesions.
I am worried that I won't be able to make it to the conference, as much as I would like to go. My husband works construction. It has been a hard winter here in Ohio!
I hope your inhibin tests come back good! Dee

No cancer! Yeah! Dee
