Resect if possible: If the ovarian lesion is associated with a pelvic mass they are probably related and require biopsy. Once cancer is defined it does require surgical debulking totally or to a minimal lesion less than 1 cm. to allow for the proper response to chemo. Omentectomy always follows with a debulking procedure.
