• A CT scan of the pelvis, abdomen and chest is needed if the mass is solid or complex (solid + cystic) or if tumor markers are elevated. Ring the rooms as we can help with this if you have need advice or assistance. Sometimes a MRI is required but I can organize that after the consult.
  • Patients require tumour markers CA125, CA 19.9 and CEA. Women under the age of 40 should also need alpha fetoprotein, LDH and HCG
  • If the patient has a significant medical history, we appreciate any correspondence about those conditions.
  • Laparoscopic surgery is possible for some cases. However, some patients will require a laparotomy for surgical exploration/frozen section
