High DHEA and High Testosterone

I am 19 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS 6 years ago.  I was taking both metformin and spironalactone up until a year ago, and am now taking just the spironalactone.  I was tested a short while ago and my DHEA level was 1400 and my testosterone was also high.  My doctor confirmed that I have PCOS but also said it was imperative that I have a CAT scan to check for adrenal tumors.  So I can at least calm down for the next few days, I would like to know the likelihood that I have adrenal cancer.  Has anyone else had this high of a DHEA level and was found NOT to have cancer?
