Thank you for choosing health care magic. From the test what you have mentioned your physician is trying to rule out tuberculosis of abdomen. This investigation is no way related Ovarian cancer. Have a discussion with your physician regarding your condition.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Pain in lower abdomen is not always associated with ovaries or uterus. The test PCR for Kochs is a very specific test for tuberculosis commonly known as T.B. It is not necessary that it is T.B. but the exact situation will be clear only after the test results come.
