Maybe: If a female has questionable ovarian pathology a pelvic exam is useful because ovaries can be palpated for the most part. If noted, workup should continue. A pelvic sonogram can also tell whether a simple or complex cyst is present or a solid lesion of ovary is present and that laparoscopic removal is needed.
