Hello, some questions

Hello. I am 28 years old and currently going through testing for ovarian cancer. Over the last 8 months I have been bloated, tummy issues, period issues and pain in my right ovary area. With my family's rampant ovarian cancer history (two aunts, grandmother and my cousin- all on my mothers side and only my grandmother was over the age of 35 at diagnoses) My gyn ordered a CA 125 test and an ultrasound. Ca 125 came back elevated but she said the test is not used to diagnose- it is  more of an additinal piece of information. Does this sound right to you all? My ultrasound was this morning. I haven't gotten the results yet but I don't suspect that they found anything because the u/s (both vaginal and abdominal) was over within 15 minutes. My gyn had mentioned just sending me to a gyn/oncologist regardless of what the ultrasound does or doesn't show. What do you ladies think?

I would definitely go to a gyn/oncologist.
