This is Dr. David
it sounds like you had a CT scan of your abdomen and a biopsy
sometimes CT scan scans can see things in your abdomen and not know what they are.
in your case, they are seeing a soft tissue something in your bowels
a biopsy was done?
fibroadipose tissue is scar tissue and fat tissue.
it sounds like the pathologist can not say for sure there is no cancer there.
but your prior abdominal surgery did not find cancer in 19 lymph nodes.
did you have cancer in your stomach? is that why you had prior stomach surgery?
sometimes a biopsy doesn't get enough tissue sample to say for sure if a soft tissue mass is cancerous or not.
you might benefit from a PET/CT scan to look at this soft tissue mass to see if it lights up on PET scan.
have you had a PET scan yet?
