What areas are evaluated during a MRA for a splenic artery aneurysm? What other organs do they show like ovaries or colon?

Just blood vessels: The "a" in MRA stands for angiogram, so they are looking primarily at blood vessels. While they might see the spleen, left kidney and some of your intestines and stomach it will not be in great detail. And unless they ordered the study to extend to your pelvis it will not show your ovaries or uterus

What are possible causes of sensation of incomplete evacuation of bowls? I'm worried I have colon cancer.

What are possible causes of sensation of incomplete evacuation of bowls? I'm worried I have colon cancer.

Incomplete function: When one has a bowel movement they assume all fecal material in the rectum has passed. That is true. The bowel however has a storage area where fecal material accumulates before it passes to the rectum Just like the GB is a reservoir for bile the transverse colon may be loaded as the storage age and at the time of a BM has not completely emptied. Might need more time to empty bowel. Not Ca.

I'm having some symptoms of colon cancer. How far has it progressed when you start having symptoms? Does it vary?

May be none: There can be no symptoms at all all the way to bleeding, blockage, perforation, unwanted or unexplained weight loss. Symptoms may not be specific for colon ca. See your doc. You rsported a clean ct scan-that's good. What about the colonoscopy results? That's how the diagnosis would get made-biopsy of a tissue sample.
