Does Ovarian Cancer Show On A Ct Scan
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Detects mass: Imaging, either by ultrasound, ct or MRI detects a mass in the ovary and cts are good at that, but not the only modality. Current imaging techniques are good at suggesting ovarian cancer. Actual diagnosis of the nature of the mass requires examination of the tissue by a pathologist. ...Read more
Not very reliable: Ultrasound, ct, tumor marker evaluation, history, and physical exam have not been shown to be effective in adequately screening for this disease (even when used all together). This is a disease we don't really have a handle on right now. This doesn't mean patients who have pelvic pain or risk factors shouldn't be evaluated, but the tools available have not been shown to increase life expectancy. ...Read more
I have 2 cystic ovarian masses, on CT scan. Could this mean ovarian cancer. I'm nervous. 29 years old?
Almost never!!: It is very common to see cysts on the ovaries. Ovaries make cysts every month that contain eggs. These come and go all the time. These are usually small, under 3cm each. But you should follow up with your gynecologist who can check with an ultrasound. Ct scan is a very poor way to look at the ovaries and pelvic ultrasound will tell you much more. Most likely, they will go away on their own. ...Read more
To detect ovarian cancer, abnormality of cells or cysts or any other growth what is better MRI or ct-scan?
Ct found ovarian cystic mass, does that mean a cyst. Can a CT scan tell the difference between a cyst and tumor? Worried about ovarian cancer.
Depends.: A cystic ovarian lesion can be a benign cyst or a cystic neoplasm. Even a benign cyst can be difficult to diagnose on ct if it has blood (hemorrhagic) or debris inside it. A ct may not be able to discern a hemorrhagic cyst from a solid tumor. A cyst with a growth along its wall may be suspicious. An ultrasound may be useful. Short term follow may tell if the cyst resolve/improve. ...Read more
Yes/No: For early detection of Cancer, there are well defined screening guidelines which your primary care physician can share with you and guide you. For Colon cancer CT scan is not a good screening test. Instead Colonoscopy is the best test, but it is to be done> 40 years of age unless you have any symptoms like rectal bleeding or abdominal pain.

If there is sufficient update in the PET scan (SUV of >2.5), I would advise you to have another breat imaging study done. You have a choice to have mammography, repeat Ultrasound test or repeat PET scan once again, if the last PET scan was done >3 months earlier.
Good luck. ...Read more

My mom aged 75 got recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer, with peritoneal fluid. CT shows no liver or lymph node What is life expectency with Treat?
No way to tell: Some of these are super-slow growers and she may have more good years ahead. Her oncologist can look at the pathology report and tell her the chances -- and it's always "percentage odds" rather than life expectancy. ...Read more

Mom 60. Abdomen CT shows has hypo dens liver masses no hbs afp 4.46 echinococesus <1:16 ca-125 >5000 is its ovarian cancer or not & on which stage
It is likely a cance: A high ca 125 leads us to look for ovarian cancer as the most likely cause (sometimes it is due to primary perotoneal cancinoma or fallopean tube tumor). The ct scan may show some intraperitoneal disease or pelvic disease including ovarian massess. But she needs a biopsy proof of cancer and then will likely require treatment for ovarian cancer which often includes debulking surgery and chemotherapy. ...Read more

Can a internal ultrasound detect ovarian cancer? Or at least show if there's something suspicious going on?
Yes, but: A transvaginal ultrasound (US)and or abdominal ultrasound can often detect enlargement the ovary in ovarian cancer. However screening US are not recommended as there are many conditions that can cause ovarian enlargement besides cancer, most all of them benign. The most important approach is to check US in women with persistent unexplained abdominal or urinary symptoms. ...Read more
Can a pelvic ultrasound detect ovarian cancer? What are the chances of having a normal scan and still having it?
Fairly reliable test: Pelvic ultrasound is fairly reliable to detect masses or fluid collections in the pelvis. It will also pick up most cases of Ovarian Cancer. So a normal ultrasound rules out obvious Ovarian cancer. Yet it can miss small tumors arising from the ovary. I think you can relax and not worry about missing cancer if you have no pelvic or abdominal symptoms... which can be quite subtle for ovarian cancer. ...Read more
I have all the symptoms of ovarian cancer. Had a blood test and it was negative and my scan turned out negative too. So what is the matter?
Ovarian cancer: More often than not, ovarian cancer does not have symptoms. If your scan and blood tests are negative, obviously one must consider other causes. If you separately list your symptoms here, we might be able to help. Even better might be a consult via HealthTap Prime or Healthtap Concierge. Whatever we can do to help. Good luck. ...Read more
