In brief: Ovarian mass

If somebody has ovarian cancer, you would see some sort of mass/cystic mass there in ovary.
The problem is that many times, prople can have cysts in their ovaries comes and goes and majority of those cysts are benign. So, you really need to monitor all those cysts closely. You can not have ovarian cancer without a devleopment of some sort of mass.
