Brief Answer:
Can be due to cancer.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
A heterogenous lesion in the lower part of uterus that is 6.1cm large can be related to cancer. Biopsy and CT scan are needed to detect the extent of mass and any other lymph node enlargement. You need to consult a gynecologist for biopsy and consult an oncologist at Apollo XXXXXXX in case anything suspicious comes up in the biopsy report.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
