Huge ovarian cystadenoma

The huge ovarian serous cystadenoma from the previous case with the ruler given for comparison! It’s hard to believe this was discovered in a 16-year-old female. An ovarian cyst is a sac filled with liquid or semiliquid material that arises in an ovary. Such cysts can be broadly classified as either functional or neoplastic. Neoplastic ovarian cysts can be either benign or malignant. This picture shows a large benign serous cystadenoma of an ovary at the time of surgery. This type of tumor is at the benign end of the spectrum of ovarian serous tumors and is generally asymptomatic, and if symptoms are present, they are usually related to mass effect with displacement of adjacent structures, e.g. loops of bowel, adnexal torsion. They are composed of unilocular (or at times multilocular) cysts filled with clear watery fluid. Most cysts measure 10 cm in average diameter, but may be extremely large. This one measured 30cm!
