Pelvic Mass in Women- Update-24.2.19,Causes in Prepubertal Girls,Benign & Malignant

Hello friends,

As promised, we will continue our discussion on Pelvic Mass and will discuss causes in pre-pubertal girls.

-The main reasons are functional cysts and benign i.e. non-cancerous lesions like germ cell tumors and mature cystic teratomas which are commonly known as Dermoid Cyst.

–  Cancerous or malignant tumors of ovary are very rare and account for only 1 percent.

-Causes for adolescent girls are pretty much same as pre-pubertal girls and in addition include Endometriosis and sequalae of pelvic inflammatory disease.

– In these age groups the diagnosis is a challenge as these masses present with non-specific signs and symptoms.

 Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is the preferred surgery if at all it Is required.

– So, friends, in next update of this series will discuss in detail about some other aspect of this topic.
