I have an enlarged uterus and ovary and a hiatal hernia, also top of my stomach has thickened. What does this all mean?

Depends: If you had a ct scan of your abdomen and pelvis and the results included the above, they may be incidental findings, unless you have symptoms. A uterus > 13cm, an ovary >3cm should be evaluated. It does happen with er visits and imaging that you get a secondary benefit by knowing something is amiss before you have symptoms. Visit with your regular doc. ...Read more
