For years I have had a mass showing up in left ovary. All say it is normal but it is always in the same ovary and now there is uptake during a pet SCAN.
I have an extensive metastatic melanoma history and all my care was in California. I have been in Colorado for five years (cancer free during that time) but I am more concerned than they are about my results. What do you think?
Below are results from radiology.
-NUCLEAR MED: Abdomen and Pelvis:
There is small focal left pelvic hypermetabolism, image 283, SUV 4.9.
-PT WITH ABD PAIN, HAS HYPERMETABOLISM IN 1 (left) OVARY BY PET.
Ovaries are suboptimally visualized. The right ovary measures 2.7 x
2.1 x 2.2 cm.
The left ovary measures 3.2 x 3.8 x 3.0 cm. There is a
3.1 x 2.2 x 2.6 cm area in the left ovary. It is largely echo-free
but the borders are not distinctly characterized. Spectral wave
Doppler shows normal blood inflow/outflow in left ovary.
