It is difficult to determine what the exact the mass is but the report suggest a hematoma, blood clot. I would follow your doctors recommendation and get a CT scan. J. Kyle Mathews, MD
second report after catscan
ABDOMEN: The visualized lung bases are clear. The liver is homogeneous in
texture with no focal lesions. There is no biliary ductal dilatation. The
gallbladder is normal. The spleen, pancreas, and adrenal glands are normal.
The kidneys are unremarkable with no contour irregularities, hydronephrosis,
or nephrolithiasis. The stomach, duodenum, and intra-abdominal loops of bowel
are normal in caliber and unremarkable. There is no retroperitoneal or
mesenteric lymphadenopathy. The intra-abdominal aorta is normal in
PELVIS: The sigmoid colon and rectum are normal in appearance. The distal
ureters and bladder are normal. There are two fibroids in the uterus. There
is another ill-defined area of hypodensity in the uterus which does not have
the typical appearance for fibroid, but which may represent an old involuting
fibroid, however this is not certain. The left ovary appears normal. The
right ovary is not clearly visualized. There is a well-circumscribed 11 cm,
intermediate density, slightly heterogeneous adnexal mass. It appears to have
internal components that enhance, which may represent thin septations. There
is no clear capsule. There is free fluid in the pelvis the cul-de-sac and
around the right ovarian lesion. A buttock granuloma as seen on the right.
BONE WINDOWS: No focal lytic or sclerotic osseous lesion suspicious for
infection or malignancy is seen.
1. 11 cm right ovarian mass, which is mostly low density but which may have
internal enhancing components. Recommend followup with gynecologic surgery.
If further imaging is needed, recommend MRI.
2. Hypoenhancing ill-defined area in the uterus, possibly representing an old
involuting fibroid. Recommend follow up with with gynecologic surgery. If
further imaging is needed, MRI is recommended.

so a few questions i can think of for her but she might have more herself..
(1)what kind of surgery should she be expecting?
(2)how long may she need to take of from work for recovery?bare minimum and/or how long she should.
(3) how long will it take for actual recovery..ie heavy lifting,house work full exercise etc.
(4)is this a major or minor surgery? (i think its based of level of anesthesia) right?
any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm a loving son who desperately want to help
