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