The cyst should be followed up on in a short period of time (6weeks) with a pelvic ultrasound, but if there was anything questionable about the lymph nodes then ct. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Cancer risk is 1 in 500 in children. Also using iodinated contrast might cause transient renal failure in about 5% of patients. (contrast induced nepropathy) most do not explain this to the patient as ...Read more
