Obstetrics 4

A 51-year-old woman presents to her primary care physician for her annual physical examination. She reports decreased menopausal vasomotor symptoms over the last few months, with only a few episodes of irregular spotting. Her medical history is significant for menarche at age 16 and initiation of menopause at age 50. Physical examination reveals a right-sided adnexal mass. A pelvic ultrasound reveals a hypoechoic lesion on the right ovary.

Which of the following additional features, if present, would be most reassuring that the ovarian lesion is benign?

  • A) Increased vascularity
  • B) Size > 10 cm
  • C) Smooth and simple wall
  • D) Solid components
  • E) Thick septations
