I was diagnosed to have an ovarian cancer last 2010. The doctor told me so because of my CA125 result that was 10x higher than the normal range. After hearing the doctors pronouncement, i feel like as if tomorrow i will die. I want to drop everything that i used to do,my masters degree, my job, and everything that is precious to me. But we don't stop there, me and my husband went to the big city and went medical check ups from one hospital to another. Until this one diplomate doctor in gynecology, who told me finally that it isn't cancer, it was my Endometriosis that mimics the CA 125 result to be 10x higher than the normal. So next time folks when your doc says you have cancer, don't easily believe with it until you seek 2nd, 3rd,4th,5th opinion.
