So I went to my gyno for some pelvic pain and some other hormonal issues, and during the pelvic exam she detected a golf ball sized "mass" in my colon..it definitely hurt when she pressed on it..the next step is to do a laxative cleanse and to come back and, I suppose, do another pelvic exam, to see if the "mass" is still there? So, I'm thinking that there's a possibility that this "mass" could simply be poop? Obviously, the word MASS freaks me out. When I asked my gyno if this is something I should be worried about she said, "it is what it is"
Also, I had an ultrasound prior to the pelvic exam to check my ovaries and uterus, which were totally fine, and obviously didn't pick up on the mass, because the tech wasn't looking for it, my doc only detected it during the pelvic exam.
Does anyone here have any experience like this? What is your interpretation of the word "mass"??
