Most masses that develop in the pelvic area are ovarian masses, which can form from the tissues of ovaries, the female reproductive glands.
Women who experience any abnormal discomfort in the abdominal and pelvic region should be examined by a gynecologic oncologist specializing in ovarian disease.
Ovarian mass treatment will depend on the individual case. Some ovarian masses may be monitored for several months to determine whether or not the size of the mass changes.
The Ovarian Cancer Institute at Mercy is a National Center of Excellence located in Baltimore, Maryland, providing ovarian cyst treatment, ovarian mass treatment and ovarian cancer treatment to patients in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania — the Mid-Atlantic region. Our gynecologic surgeons are dedicated to helping patients find the best care, treatment and surgery options available for ovarian cancer and ovarian disease.
