Ovarian cyst dermoid or serous cystadenoma can be tested with small  part for complete pathologic analysis?

Unfortunately Not: The problem with ovarian tumors is that you can have normal cell types adjacent to borderline or malignant cells.

Need removal: Typically a CA-125 level would be checked to help determine the likelihood of malignancy. Sounds low based on the US findings. Regardless, the mass should be removed to relieve your symptoms and so that a pathologist can evaluate the ovary. Most times both tubes and ovaries would be removed and sometimes the uterus. Discuss with surgeon to make the best decision. Hope this helps. ...Read more
