Understanding CT scan results

Finished treatment for stage IIIA colon cancer in August. On six month follow up CT scan of abdomen/pelvis, the radiologist noted: "Uterine heterogeneity with prominence of the cervix/lower uterine segment. Recommend correlation for dysfunctional uterine bleeding, pelvic pain or neoplastic process." What does this mean? All other scans results/blood work seem clear/normal.

Understood, on calming though that comes to my mind is:  if the radiologist saw anything he/she diagnosed as emergency that would have been shared with your doctor for immediate action, as needed.

This thinking doesn't give you a "clean bill of health", but hope if offers some comfort.

Haven't met with her yet about results. I guess I'm just antsy!

In my experience the radiologist isn't someone we/I talk results with. What has your Oncologist  (I assume prescribed the CT scan) advise?
