Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Adnexal mass post CA: Any adnexal mass post reproductive cancer bears investigation by a GYN MD. Although the tubes and uterus are gone ovarian issues must be assessed by Laparoscopy and biopsy if needed. Blood testing for ovarian cancer is often notably inaccurate as elevated levels of CA 125 can also occur in Endometriosis.
