    A right cystectomy was the first course of action as the ultrasound and CT scan had confirmed that were was a dermoid cyst on the right ovary.

    After all of these tests and doctor visits, I was diagnosed with stage one ovarian cancer. A granulosa cell tumor was found on my right ovary. It was pretty rare considering less than five out of one hundred ovarian cancer patients have a tumor like that. It was astonishing that a sixteen year old, with no previous ovarian cancer occurrences in her family, was diagnosed with the cancer.

Rather than taking the extra precaution and doing an MRI to find the appendix, he cut me open, giving me a seven-inch scar, and looked for it, well, manually.
