Gastro recommended CT and colonscopy for mild abdominal pain/gas. 23 yrs old. If CT scan shows nothing, is colonoscopy necessary? no bloody stools

Similarly Colonoscopy is not indicated because of pain alone.If there is bowel irregularity or blood in stool Colonoscopy is reasonable to do. In your case I would watch /monitor for 4-6 weeks, then ...Read more

Can an ovarian cyst or tumor cause you to have dark tarry blood in stools with abdominal distention and gas with pain?

Can an ovarian cyst or tumor cause you to have dark tarry blood in stools with abdominal distention and gas with pain?

Not usually.: The only way that this scenario could happen is if the tumor or ovarian cyst was connected to the digestive tract via an abnormal fistula. This would be a highly unlikely event, and if you do have black tarry stools, I would instead suspect a problem in the upper digestive tract rather than in the ovaries. If this is occurring, go to your local emergency room immediately. Good luck. ...Read more
