Sacro illiacal hyperdens bone 150 mm 120 mm possible hemangioom severe pelvic pain- seen on CT after I fell off stair - cancer? 30 female

No cancer: Common to have bone or even muscle pain if one suffers a fall probably landing on the sacroiliac region. Often one has disruption of a tendon from its pelvic attachment such as the hamstrings from ischial tuberosity with hematoma, not hemangioma of bone. Warm baths will help subside the condition. Cancer is never the result of such trauma. ...Read more

Cancer (Definition)

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

I have a dull pain in my pelvis! I'm 24 female, terrified I have ovarian cancer. Gp apt next week. Suffer serious health anxiety. Help me please?

Very rare under 40: Do you have a family history of ovarian cancer? There are many non-serious causes of pelvic pain in women your age. Ovarian cancer seems like a really remote possibility given your age. It typically occurs in women over 40, half are over age 60. Be calm and wait for your check up. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more

Risk for cancer after 2 CT scans in a month? 1 abd/pelvis + 1 CT lung angiogram to rule out PE. 32 female. Scared!

Risk for cancer after 2 CT scans in a month? 1 abd/pelvis + 1 CT lung angiogram to rule out PE. 32 female. Scared!

Low risk overall: It is commonly thought that the extra risk of any one person developing a fatal cancer from a typical CT procedure is about 1 in 2, 000. In contrast, the lifetime risk of dying from cancer in the U.S. population is about 1 in 5. However, the lifetime risk of cancer from a single CT scan was small—about one case of cancer for every 10, 000 CTS

Can a ct/mri of the pelvis detect bladder cancer I pee a lot and I always have pain on my side and hip bw, rad, urine tests all negative I'm a female?

Can a ct/mri of the pelvis detect bladder cancer I pee a lot and I always have pain on my side and hip bw, rad, urine tests all negative I'm a female?

Sometimes: A ct or MRI can detect larger or advanced bladder tumors. However, many bladder tumors are subtle and found on only by looking inside the bladder (cystoscopy). Without blood in your urine on a microscopic evaluation, it is unlikely you have a bladder tumor. Continue to work with your doctor for the right approach and diagnosis. Eventually you may want to see a urologist or urologic gynecologist. ...Read more

So scared I'm going to get cancer, esp. Breast ca from 2 CT scans in a month. 1 abd/pelvis and 1 CT pulmonary angiogram to rule out PE? 32 female.

So scared I'm going to get cancer, esp. Breast ca from 2 CT scans in a month. 1 abd/pelvis and 1 CT pulmonary angiogram to rule out PE? 32 female.

It's ok: Two ct scans in any period of time is well within safe limits of radiation exposure. Remember however, the effects don't diminish over time, so in the future, if you need an imaging study, ask if there's an alternative to something with radiation, or a technique to limit the dose. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Risk for breast cancer from CT pulmonary angiogram for PE? 32 female. Also had one CT of abd/pelvis before. Article said 14% increase! True? Scared!

That's bunk: I am really sorry that some cynical liar is trying to frighten you. The extra radiation in a CT scan is what you'd get by living in Denver rather than in Topeka for three months. There's no law against doctor-bashers making stuff up. By contrast, we're required to be totally honest because of our position before the law. Stop reading this garbage or you'll be miserable. ...Read more

32 female. Had CT Ab/pelvis in Nov and CT Pulmonary Angiogram to rule out PE in late Dec. Scared of breast cancer/other cancer from radiation?

32 female. Had CT Ab/pelvis in Nov and CT Pulmonary Angiogram to rule out PE in late Dec. Scared of breast cancer/other cancer from radiation?

Not to worry: The reasons for the radiologic studies were sound ones and not doing these studies would have had much more risk than the radiation exposure to the breast. It is highly unlikely that you would get breast cancer from the CT or angiography. ...Read more

Found lump by pelvic bone, is this cancer?

Needs evaluation: Finding a lump is always anxiety producing. I would recommend you see your doc to further evaluate where the lump is and whether it is related to soft tissue overlying the bone or the bone itself.

What's your question: This sounds like diverticulitis. There is a possibility of inflammation in the colon from the biopsies but this is uncommon and diverticulitis is common. You should see your doctor back to see if you need antibiotics or further investigation of the pelvis. ...Read more

Is one sided pelvic pain symptom of ovarian cancer?

Probably not: There are many causes for one-sided pelvic pain, and it depends on which side. Ovarian cysts, endometriosis, appendicitis, inflammatory bowel disease, urinary stones, pelvic infections, and even simple constipation can cause this. A healthcare provider needs to ask you more questions and examine you. Unless you have risk factors for ovarian cancer, it's low on my list of causes. So go in! ...Read more

Resect if possible: If the ovarian lesion is associated with a pelvic mass they are probably related and require biopsy. Once cancer is defined it does require surgical debulking totally or to a minimal lesion less than 1 cm. To allow for the proper response to chemo. Omentectomy always follows with a debulking procedure. ...Read more
