Yes: The fact that there is no ovarian mass is reassuring. However, there are rare cancers such as primary peritoneal cancer that may exist in the absence of a pelvic mass.

Yes,: normal appearing ovaries on CT would nearly rule out ovarian carcinoma. However, ovaries are seen in better detail with transvaginal ultrasound.
