Case Discussion on Benign ovarian masses
Benign ovarian masses are relatively common, and they encompass a variety of non-cancerous growths in the ovaries.Common benign ovarian masses include functional cysts, dermoid cysts, cystadenomas, and fibromas, each with distinctive features. Symptoms can range from asymptomatic cases to pelvic pain, bloating, and irregular menstrual cycles, often leading to their discovery during routine gynecological examinations. Transvaginal ultrasound is a key diagnostic tool for identifying and characterizing ovarian masses, providing valuable information on size, composition, and location. While most benign ovarian masses occur spontaneously, factors such as hormonal imbalances, genetic predisposition, and reproductive history may contribute to their development. Treatment options vary based on the type and size of the mass, with some resolving on their own and others requiring medical intervention, such as hormonal therapy or surgical removal. Benign ovarian masses can impact fertility, particularly when they interfere with normal ovarian function. In such cases, a multidisciplinary approach involving gynecologists and fertility specialists may be beneficial.
