Ovarian cyst is the first possibility. Laparotomy. HP investigation...

Adv ct abdomen and ct guided biopsy Sos go for laproscopic intervention Unless investigations are complete no opinions

Thanx dr Kute Ankush

Based on the history and clinical profile, next line of action should be CECT abdomen and pelvis... D/D: Left Ovarian cyst Right ovarian cyst Mesenteric cyst Retroperitoneal cyst Also better to rule out tumor markers namely, CA125, CEA Plan: surgery based on the reports

? Ovarian cyst, ? Mesenteric cyst, ? Broad ligament cyst Adv CT scan of abdomen The cyst will need surgical removal

Maximum chance of being Ovarian cyst Prepare for ovarian cystectomy and its histopathology report

Thanks Dr. Kute Ankush , Dr. Shivraj Agrawal


Tnx Dr Vipin Bihari Jain sir

Cystic ovarian mass is more likely. CT scan abdomen required.treatment depend on final diagnosis.

Need diagnostic laparotomy And need look for markers of abdominal tumors Complete evaluation

CBC LFT Serum CA 125 CECT abdomen and pelvis. She will need a staging laprotomy. Needs opinion from Surgical oncologist or gyne oncologist
