Abstract

The identification of an incidental (i.e. unexpected and asymptomatic) lesion can create a dilemma for the clinician and radiologist. The incidental abnormality may represent metastatic disease, a second primary malignancy or a benign lesion. The diagnosis and management of such incidental findings will depend in part on the clinical setting, the pathology and stage of underlying primary malignancy and the imaging features of the incidental abnormality. This article reviews the diagnosis and management of incidental pelvic lesions in the oncology patient.
