Cat scan

Can ovarian cancer be seen on a abdomen cat scan with contrast?

Re: Cat scan

Ovarian cysts can typically be seen on imaging tests including transvaginal ultrasounds (which do not expose you to radiation unlike CAT/CT scans). MOST ovarian cysts are benign and just need to be monitored. If they look suspicious or are a type that do not go away by themselves then surgery is typically done to remove them (cystectomy).
