    Unhappy GIST? Stomach mass? Ovarian cancer?

    Back in 2008 a CT scan revealed a 4mm nodule (posterior dome of liver). Doctors never even mentioned it to me I read my CT scan years later and now realized that it grew after 4 years. Unless it is a diff. lesion? Idk how to read a report & both doctors worded it differently (I worded it like they did in their reports).
    After years of pain I went back to a different doctor. After another CT scan in 2012 these were their findings:
    8mm space occupying lesion (right lobe of liver), some scarring (left lung base), Several sm. bowel loops on left, mid & left lower quadrant appear to have thickened walls, mild gastric wall thickening & prominence of folds., 13 mm right ovarian cyst ( I always have these & pain feels diff. than rupture), and right inguinal adenopathy. My EUS also revealed a smooth 2x2cm stomach mass.

    Any insight to my findings would be helpful! I am in constant pain going on years now & I am worried (although the doctors do not seem worried ) ... should I be worried? Are the nodules they found years apart the same one? or two diff. nodules? I should also note that the doctor who found the 8mm nodule doesn't know about the 4mm one prior; I discovered it while going through my own records today! I will be telling her next week when I go back.

    These are all of my symptoms: Headaches (mostly right side & eye pain), vertigo, pain (all over back & extremities mostly muscle, weakness, pins & needles). Stomach pain (sharp, stabbing), nausea (really bad I often do not want to eat & don't get hungry), EXTREME fatigue (hard to walk at times, I push myself daily), Bowel issues (either runny or constipated never normal & often dark w/ pink color? blood maybe?), I also have vision problems (halos, blurred comes & goes; I normally have GREAT vision though except when it happens), I also have spastic movement & teeth grinding problems. I am sure I am forgetting something but the overall symptom is I just feel ill all the time =( ... I am so frustrated & confused as to what is causing all my symptoms. 5 years ago I felt so great & these past 5 years have been so depressing. I just don't want this pain anymore & I want to know WHAT IS CAUSING IT! I know my body and I just feel that something is not right. Update to today 9-3-13 -
    So I went back to the doctor today & she URGED me to get a complete abdominal sonogram, stool & blood labs, EUS & biopsy! I am scared! Based on all of my symptoms what do you think it could be? I should probably mention I've had ovarian cysts since I was 14 and tested positive for the BRAC1 ... could it be caused by ovarian cancer?! I have a lot of stomach issues, mild pain (7 or 8 at worse near left ovary but have cyst on right one?). I am hoping the sono. will tell me all I need to know about that area as well?! All she said is they suspect a tumor in my stomach =( ... it will also be helpful to hear others symptoms!
