However, due to my history with bc and my present symptoms, he ordered a CT scan for chest/ab/and pelvis for Monday, and also did a ca-125 blood test, and a pap (for which I'm not sure why as I have no cervix). Some medical hx: my beloved Sister passed of kidney cancer at 53, have cousin who had bc, grandfather had colon cancer. Oh, and I also had an incidental finding of severe anal dysplasia after a hem'ectomy some time ago. (Still need to follow up on this).
My question is this please: Considering no mass palpable during pelvic exam and the fact gyn said ovary felt of normal size, isn't it highly unlikely anything would be found on the CT scan in pelvic area as far as ovca is concerned? Has anyone known of anyone's ovca being missed (a mass of some sort) on pelvic exam and then showing up on CT?
