His to; logically ovarian cysts are often divided into neoplastic growth (ovarian cystic neoplasms) and those created by disruption of normal ovulation (functional ovarian cysts).
Aims and Objective: Primary Objective: The primary objective of my study is to evaluate the ADNEXAL MASS in reproductive and perimenopausal age group in view of analyzing the percentage of malignant adnexal tumors in this age group.
Methodology: The study included patients in the reproductive and perimenopasual age group admitted in ISOKGH for evaluation in 1 year duration. From all patients basic data (age, occupation, education and address) and gynaecological data (menarche age, parity, last menstrual cycle, symptoms and family history) were obtained.
Inclusion Criteria: All reproductive and perimenopausal age group admitted in ISOKGH.
Exclusion Criteria: The patients below 15 and above 50. The patients treated as outpatients.
Results and Conclusion: Of all the adnexal mass 15% were malignant lesion, 6% were borderline lesions and the remaining were benign lesions.
Simple Ovarian cyst and mucinous cyst adenoma were the most common benign lesions and the most common malignant lesion was cyst adenocarcinoma.
