Does heterogeneous mean malignant? Does increased vascularity mean malignant? I still have not been called by my doctor about the MRI yesterday. I am very anxious. Up to the last transvaginal, no one could say if this thing is ovarian or otherwise.
From what I know, a soft tissue mass does not define whether something is malignant or not. I had a soft tissue mass after my hysterectomy that caused my ureter to collapse and it was not more cancer (I had my surgery to remove stage IIIc Ovarian cancer). It was just swelling, for some reason. As far as I know, a final diagnosis of malignant or benign cannot be accuratley given until after surgery. I had a biopsy done of my tumors in my abdomen, and it came back as borderline tumors. My final cancer diagnosis didn't happen until after my surgery.
