I’m sorry your aunt is going through this experience.  I know how hard it is on the entire family.  My sister died from ovarian cancer, and she had to fight for the diagnosis because they didn’t look beyond the individual symptoms to find the root cause. From her experience, I learned that it is never wrong to get a second opinion or push for care.

No one is ever too young or too old to benefit from your post.  Thank you.

@future_schu:  I’m sorry to hear.  I hope she pulls through strong.  What a great post to motivate us women for regular check-ups.

I’m sorry, I hope they caught it early. As another Public Service Announcement to the bees, if you have relatives with breast cancer or another gyn cancer, you may want to get tested for the BRCA gene.
