Does a CT show a difference between ovarian cyst and ovarian cancer?

In brief: Ovarian cancer

A ct of the abdomen and pelvis can give clues but surgery gives the only answers.
In general, ovarian cancers are larger, more complex, often involve the omentum and lymph nodes. Ascites (excessive fluid in the abdomen) is often seen on ct also.
