Management of Suspected Ovarian Masses in Premenopausal Women

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:1st Nov 2011

This guideline has been produced to provide information, based on clinical evidence, to assist clinicians with the initial assessment and appropriate management of suspected ovarian masses in the premenopausal woman. It aims to clarify when ovarian masses can be managed within a ‘benign’ gynaecological service and when referral into a gynaecological oncological service should occur. The ongoing management of borderline ovarian tumours is outside the remit of this guideline. The laparoscopic management of highly suspicious or known ovarian malignancies is also outside the scope of this guideline. In addition, the guideline does not specifically address the acute presentation of ovarian cysts or the management of ovarian cysts in pregnant women.
