What is your question?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Is it normal or is there someway to find answers sooner than 6 weeks? I am worried because when I put my symptoms in Google ovarian cancer popped up and while I know it Is a very rare diagnosis it also says to be on top of your symptoms
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 1 month ago.

There is no reason to do anything at all before about 3 months. 6 weeks is really too soon. Its best to allow some time to pass. Its expected that the cysts will resolve. How old are you and why are you worried about ovarian cancer?
