Hi!I,m a 49 year old women. I had an MRI done because my left adnexa measures 6 x 6 x 5 cm and is markedly heterogeneous on all sequences. Plus 2.3 x 1.6 cm soft tissue located posterior to the cervix and inferior to the left adnexal mass. Plus 2 areas of implants involving the right adnexal region just anterior to the right ovary. Also a 1.3 cm right paravaginal partly cystic ring-enhancing nodule or again an implant. Also a very small amount of free fluid in the cul-de-sac. It also stated adenomyosis.By the way my CA-125 count was 219.I'm seeing my gyno/oncologist on Tuesday to discuss surgery. After all the research I have done over this, I firmly believe I have ovarian cancer but what stage.... that is what's eating me alive.Is anyone out there has any ideas or words of wisdom for me?Thanks!Joyce
