About "can": The answer to whether or not something "can" happen in life is often "yes" because, as the saying goes, the only two things guaranteed in life are "death and taxes." The more useful question asks "how likely" is something to happen. Any ultrasound can miss any cancer, because cancers start with a single cell and take a while to become visible. One's doctor who sees the entire picture can advise.
