Ovarian masses in premenopausal women

12th January 2012 by Louise Hudman

This Guideline outlines the management of ovarian masses in premenopausal women.

If a cyst is suspected or found, take a full history, including family history and other malignancy risk factors. Ask for features that could indicate endometriosis or malignancy (early satiety or altered appetite, abdominal discomfort or urinary frequency or urgency).

Examine the person, including doing a vaginal examination.

"I have been a member of the NASGP for about 18 months and find the support and advice invaluable.

It was especially helpful when I started locum work. I think I must have spent hours on the website devouring every single article as I was keen to learn all I could before I went solo. "
