Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

In the majority of cases metastatic lesions do not appear and then go down -- they stay and grow larger with time.

As such what you are experiencing is most likely not from your ovarian cancer.....and headaches are common and are caused by a bazillion things other then cancer.

I bet you are OK.

That being said the safest thing to do would be to consult with your oncologist and see what she thinks. After examining you she may want to do an imaging study, such as a CT scan, or she may just watch things.

From what you have told me, however, I think you will be fine

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
