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.
Had kidney cancer stage 1, now a solid tumor in other kidney. If the tumor is rcc again, would i still be stage 1 if it is small? Or a higher stage?

If it is located adjacent to the actual tumor, it means something different then it does if it is located in a distant organ, such as the liver or lungs. Your doctor should go over the results of the pet scan in detail with you. Good luck. ...Read more

I had a CT scan for pain near left kidney. Told there is a hypodense lesion of 1.5cm and a hyperdense lesion of .5cm. Could this be from kidney stone?
Kidney radiology: JHerbert, hello I want to start by saying that I'm a Family Practice doctor and also worked as an ER doc for 5 years. I am not a radiologist and I hope if there's a radiologist on HealthTap they will respond to you. That said I believe kidney stones tend to be hyperdense and the size of .5cm is about right as well. A hypodense lesion may be a cyst but I suggest waiting for the official read. ...Read more
