my sister has a black vascular mass in her abdomen. could she be pregnant?
My sister is 47years old. She is as big as an 8 month pregnant women. Having all the symptoms of being pregnant but had an X-ray done for SSI last week and they found a large black vascular mass extending from her right ovary up to her lungs. Could she be pregnant? Or can the vascular mass have movement in it like a baby? Can the X-ray prove or disprove pregnancy?
First of all, an abdominal X-ray is avoided during pregnancy. If there is a suspicion of pregnancy then an ultrasound or pregnancy test (urine and blood test) is scheduled. The mass can be a vascular hemangioma or a mass that has blood moving in it. It can also be pregnancy, but this needs to be ruled out by the above mentioned tests. It can also be a highly vascular mass—a benign or a malignant tumor. Your sister definitely needs to undergo further tests. Take care!
