In brief: Adnexal mass

It is a mass that is seen in the area adjacent to the uterus.
Usually this means that it is related to the fallopian tube or ovary on that given side. There are many different things that can be called an "adnexal mass" (i.e. Ovarian cyst, abscess, neoplasm, fibroid, etc). Discuss this with your doctor.

In brief: See below

The ovaries are also called adnexa.
A mass can indicate a cyst, tumor (benign or malignant). Age can be important in helping to distinguish, and tests such as ultrasound, ct scanning and blood testing may be required to determine the cause of the adnexal mass.
