Background: Globally ovarian tumor is one of the leading causes of cancer death among women. It can present in childhood to postmenopausal age group and accounts for the most prevalent cause of hospital admissions. Ovarian tumor has varied histogenesis, clinical behavior and malignant potential.
Aims and Objectives: This study was done to analyse the frequency of ovarian lesions, their clinico-histological features in a tertiary care center.
Materials and Methods: Retrospective hospital based study conducted in the department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, GSL medical college from December 2019 to December 2020. All the relevant clinical data of patients who were treated surgically for suspected benign lesions of ovary were analysed from hospital record ?le.
Results: Of the 82 cases, 63 cases: benign (51.6%), 4 cases: borderline (3.28%), 15 cases: malignant(12.3%). Serous cystadenoma is most commonly seen benign tumor. Serous cystadenocarcinoma was commonly seen malignant tumor. Younger age group primarily presented with benign tumors whereas malignant tumors were common in elderly age group. Malignant ovarian tumors most commonly seen in nulliparous.
Conclusion: Surface epithelial tumors were the commonest ovarian tumor. Most commonly seen in the age group of 40-59yrs. Maximum numbers of malignant ovarian tumors were in the age range of >50yrs.
