Thank you for your question.Can you please let me know how big your tumor is?Why does not doctor think hysterectomy is essential in your case?Does the appearance of the tumor on the CT scan suggest cancer or is highly suggestive of it?Please let me know and if possible, could you attach your reports on here for me to have a look at.thank you.

Thank you for your response.The mass that is seen on this report does seem a little concerning because it has solid components in it and it is big in size.So despite of the fact that the tumor markers are negative I would still look at this with suspicion and the definitive diagnosis may not even be proven on MRI. The definitive diagnosis will only be make when this is removed and sent to the lab for histopathology.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
