My abdomen is asymmetrical
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 11 months ago.

Little bit of asymmetrical can be normal.

However, you should also get an ultrasound to rule out any tumor as well --but that will be very unlikely.

Fatty benign lump is most likely.

I got Ultra Sound and it showed a mass in left ovary. Should I get MRI?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 11 months ago.

Yes you need a MRI and also a biopsy if needed.

CA125 level also should be checked as a ovarian cancer marker.

Best wishes

Ca125 is a blood draw?
