Ask your doctor: It is impossible to get a reliable opinion on what a finding on a CT scan means from physicians who have not seen the scan. Speculation just leads to undue worry.

Is it normal to have a "intrauterine mass" on the "back of my uterus?" On the MRI it looks like it is near my tailbone. Does this sound right?

Sometimes it means that a woman has fibroids or adenomyosis, but it is usually not concerning. Your doc can tell you how that finding applies to you. ...Read more
