Unknown mass on cecum - UPDATE, endometriosis

Hello , a CT Scan has found a 3cm mass on my cecum (where small intestine and colon meet) it could be endometriosis or it could be cancer.
I have to wait 10 days for a specialist radiographer to do a ultrasound and hopefully it's just endometriosis.
Has anyone had this experience?

Re: Unknown mass on cecum

Hi there, I'm sorry I missed this earlier. By now the 10 days are up - what was the conclusion of the radiologist?

I'm particularly curious about the findings because I recently had a blockage of the small intestine in the area before it entered the colon. I don't, however, have any personal insight into issues with the cecum.

Yes the mass is endometriosis.
I am going to see my gynaecologist to discuss hormone therapy to try to shrink the mass or else surgery to scrape it off the cecum.
If it is deep and there is a tear then that part of the bowel will have to be resected.
Both the gyno and the colorectal surgeon will do the surgery. Hopefully by keyhole not full laparotomy.
(Also found a cyst on one ovary and endo in vagina so they will be scraped too.
I might have ovaries and Fallopian tubes removed too)

Re: Unknown mass on cecum - UPDATE, endometriosis

I'm glad to read that the mass is not cancerous. I've moved your post to our Endometriosis Support forum in hopes that you will get input from our members who also deal with endo.

It does seem that endo can be a recurring issue. Have you sought the opinion of an endo specialist, or is your gyno a specialist? From what I understand, excision is the best solution for ending endo.

I know you joined us many years ago, but I don't know how much you've explored our site. In addition to this forum, we've got many articles on Endometriosis.

It's my hope for you that it doesn't come to surgery. Please keep us updated.

Thanks for endo info.
I had my hysterectomy in 2011 but kept my ovaries. So it seems endo continued and is now a problem.

Hi, we may be talking about the same area as the Cecum is the 1st part of the large Intestine, wher the small intestine joins it.
How was your blockage treated? Hormone therapy to shrink it or keyhole surgery to excise it? thanks
