I have a small mass in my lower left abdominal pelvic region. It feels marble like, only one side. I am scheduled for an ultrasound? Could it be bad?

Also it could be an infection in the bladder, or possibly an enlargement of the uterus or ovaries - all of which need an exam to check out. ...Read more
