i had a ct scan done for an ulcer and in the report they found a small cyst on the right ovary and an enhancing ring structure in the left ovary nature uncertain they say a mitotic lesion cannot be excluded should i be worried or not apparently my uterus is bulky as well i have a sister who has ovarian cancer but is in the middle of treatment and dont want to worry her unduly by asking her what is a mitotic lesion?
Mitosis is the normal method of cell division. Obviously, conditions like cancer can increase the rate of mitosis. The report is explaining that your ovary has a growth in it. Essentially, this report is stating that the nature of the growth is not known, and that you need proper follow-up of this lesion to determine its nature. Given that you do have a family member with ovca, it is imperative that you make certain that you get the proper exams and tests.
