Bowel?: This might be your colon, stool in your large intestine. Sometimes that can feel like a mass. Ultrasound should find your ovary, if it is enlarged. The next step would be to have a ct scan with oral and maybe IV contrast enhancement to see better. None of this has anything to do with pap smear results or colposcopy findings.

Consider MRI: If your doc is sure there is a mass (or at least pretty convinced), ultrasound should be able to see it although not always. Would consider MRI for better eval. If that is negative, then i would trust that.
