It was more than 80 percent correct in spotting cancerous nodules, but accuracy still needs improving

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.
