Hi and welcome to the site. My name is***** hope I'm able to provide some helpful medical information for you today.
I'm sorry that you're feeling worried.
It's best to have an in person evaluation. At age 44 there are much more likely reasons for a large mass and these symptoms. The most common would be a large non-cancerous fibroid tumor.
An Ob-Gyne would be the best doctor to evaluate this. They would start with a history, exam and ultrasound imaging. Most likely that would be enough to tell what is going on.
Please let me know if I can clarify anything. I hope all goes well.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
