In brief: Yes, some details se

Ct scan shows the normal anatomy of all the structures examined although it is not the best test for hip cancer which is best seen with a ct scan or MRI scan of the pelvis with a focus on the bones.

In brief: Likely

A ct scan of the pelvis should include the hip bones so one would likely pick up a bone cancer like ewing sarcoma, osteosarcoma or chondrosarcoma.
