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.

Not necessarily. Ultrasound would be a more accurate test to evaluate the contents of an ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts are common findings. You should see your gynecologist.

I have 2 cystic ovarian masses, on CT scan. Could this mean ovarian cancer. I'm nervous. 29 years old?

Almost never!! It is very common to see cysts on the ovaries. Ovaries make cysts every month that contain eggs. These come and go all the time. These are usually small, under 3cm each. But you should follow up with your gynecologist who can check with an ultrasound. Ct scan is a very poor way to look at the ovaries and pelvic ultrasound will tell you much more. Most likely, they will go away on their own. Read more...
