Today went for annual gyno check-up and was told they think I have ovarian cancer. apt made to see specialist. Why would ca125 and scan show normal with no mention of this "mass" by the radioligist? What is your opinion on this? Thanks.

Hi. What kind of internal scan did you have and did your gyno check up reveal any mass in the area of an ovary?
