hard lump in pelvic area/CT scan

Hi everyone, I am in remission from stage 3c Ovarian Cancer, 6 years post surgery and chemo, disease free, with consistently low CA 125's. (Last CA 125 taken 6 months ago)  I have a very hard, walnut sized pointy lump in my lower left pelvic area.  After exam, Gyn Onc says it must come out, he is very worried.  CT (pelvis/abdo w & w/o contrast) shows nothing.  Has anyone ever heard of this? There is most defininitely a lump there, easy to find and feel.  Thank you.

hi! i am just recovering from the same & also have a strange lump in my abdomen: sonogram showed nothing special & my onc doesnt seem worried enuf! it actually pulls & i am aware of it without touching it!

to go back to your recovery: i have had consistently low ca125 since my first chemo: i am hoping this is a good sign!

did u have any special treatment except carboplatin & paclitaxel?
