Abstract

Adnexal masses are common dilemmas faced by practicing gynecologists. They affect women from before birth throughout life, yet considerable disagreement exists regarding their optimal management. Traditional management focused on avoiding undertreatment of a potentially malignant process. Advances in detection, diagnosis, and minimally invasive management make it necessary to review this practice to avoid unnecessary morbidity and mortality. The literature emphasizes a minimally invasive approach to the treatment of benign lesions without sacrificing the principles of oncologic surgery.
