Tumors can be Big: Ovarian tumors can get to be very large. A 303 pound ovarian tumor was removed from a woman in the early 1990s at stanford. There is a good amount of space in the pelvis for a tumor to grow and a woman may think she is just gaining weight. The powers of denial and of the body to adjust to abnormalities are also strong and can lead to long delays in diagnosis and big tumors.
