An ultrasound: would confirm that this simply represents an ovarian cyst. The chance of the finding you describe representing melanoma is almost zero. ...Read more

Cyst rupture or not?: The free fluid could be from a ruptured ovarian cyst, or it could just be physiological free fluid. Did you have severe pelvic pain that seemed to get better with time? If so, a ruptured cyst is more likely. ...Read more

Which is better for detecting ovarian tumors ultrasound or cat scan, my pelvic ultrasound said solid mass, CT said no mass?

Complimentary: Ct ; ultasound are complimentary imaging modalities. For smaller masses in appropriate location ultrasound may have an advantage especially if done transvaginally. For larger masses ct may have the advantage of not being blocked by bowel gas and being less degraded by large body habitus. More specific info in your case would be helpful. Size of mass? How was the sono done? Ct with oral and IV cont. ...Read more

Could an abdominal/pelvic CT scan without contrast (ordered for ureteral stones) detect ovarian cancer also?

MAYBE: Although a contrast-enhanced ct--or, better still, a pelvic ultrasound--are preferred methods for visualizing the ovaries, a non-contact ct would likely show nonspecific irregularities of the ovaries. Bottom line: pelvic ultrasound is the best choice for visualizing ovaries. ...Read more

Most likely Cyst: Cancer much less likely. As you know nothing in life is 100%. The most likely diagnosis based on what is described is cyst. Depending on simple vs. Complex cyst it needs to be followed for a couple of your cycles till resolves. Cancer is much less likely. ...Read more

Can a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis detect ovarian, cervical, uterine and colon cancer? Can it also detect fibroid?

Can a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis detect ovarian, cervical, uterine and colon cancer? Can it also detect fibroid?

It is a great imagin: Ct scan is one of the best way to look inside the abdomen, showing images of all the solid organs(not hollow ones). So we can visualize the ovarian and uterine massess(like tumors, cysts, growths like fibroids).Yet we can not see small tumors in colon or even in the ovaries and uterus.So we end up using 2 different tests, adding ultrasound for uterus/ovay, barium to see inside the intestine/stomac. ...Read more

See Answer: The ovaries are dynamic organs, with developing follicles that mature, “rupture” – and release the egg at about 22-25mm, and regress. This physiology may cause “mittelschmerz” or ovulation pain that could last for a few days. This is not uncommonly accompanied by some slight fluid in the cul –de - sac or adnexal areas of the pelvis. If symptoms or concern persist please see your dr. To insure. ...Read more
