Benign Ovarian Tumors
Benign Ovarian Tumors link

Benign ovarian tumors are noncancerous growths that start in the ovary. While they are made of abnormal cells, the tumor will not spread to other parts of the body. The cause of benign ovarian tumors is unknown, but obesity, infertility, and early menstruation are believed to increase the risk.

Symptoms include:

  • Feeling of pressure in the pelvis
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Pelvic or lower abdominal pain
  • Periods

Surugery is usually needed to remove the tumor, and in severe cases, the ovary may need to be removed. Usually, once the tumor is removed, it will not grow back.
