Abstract

Adnexal masses are a common indication for surgery in the United States. This article reviews the clinical features that may suggest an underlying malignancy, including ultrasound and biomarkers. The decision regarding how to remove an adnexal mass involves consideration of several factors, including body habitus, intra-abdominal anatomy, concomitant procedures planned, characteristics of the adnexal mass, and concern for underlying malignancy. Minimally invasive techniques for removal of adnexal masses are discussed in detail, with a review of the risk of an unexpected underlying malignancy.
