i have an uncomfortable feeling in my lower abdomen and occasional bleeding...
i was looking on the web and it led me to two conclusions that it could be,
and that is endometriosis or ovarian cancer. i seen a doctor today and he
ordered me and x ray of my abdomen, would it be possible for them to see
what is going on down there?

They won't be able to tell you if you have either of those with an x-ray. The only way to tell if you have endo is from an exploratory laparoscopy. (I've had 4 laps done for endo and cyst removal.) As for ovarian cancer,  I think a PAP and blood work would tell that. I think your doc should have ordered an ultrasound if anything...  but they know it all right?? :) i hope all goes well for you though, and wishing you luck. If you need anything, send a note or message, I'll be happy to help if I can :) GOOD LUCK!

I agree!  My situation started similar to yours.  I never had an xray but, I had 3 different ultrasounds.  The only time they were able to fully diagnois me was when I had a lap procedure.  My ultrasound showed a 2 cm fibroid.  My lap showed a whole lot more.
