Huge Abdominal swelling with distention.

A 22 year old nulliparous female came for increasing abdominal distention, fatigue, and indigestion over the past 6 months. Over the course of this time, she also began having severe nausea, primarily limited to her menses, only relieved with prescription anti-emetics. She had regular cycles, was sexually active with one partner, used condoms and denied dyspareunia, fever or chills. On physical exam, her abdomen was non-tender, but significantly distended with a palpable mass to the level of the xiphoid process. Pregnancy test was negative. Her complete blood count, electrolytes, liver function tests and thyroid panel were normal. CT scan was done revealing a massive, simple, cystic mass extending into the upper abdomen measuring 23x13.3x27cm. In addition, a left ovarian mass with a small calcification, measuring 8x 5x7.3cm was identified, suspicious for a teratoma. Right ovarian tissue could not be definitively identified. What do you find in CT? Dx? Mx?
