Graphical Abstract:


In the postmenopausal women, adnexal masses can have numerous etiologies. They can range from benign to neoplastic, with origins from a variety of organ systems. The diagnostic work up includes a thorough history, physical exam, as well as potential imaging and laboratory testing. There should be a low threshold for consultations with oncologists when there are cancer concerns. Specifically for gynecologic neoplasms, a referral to a gynecologic oncologist should be strongly considered. In this paper, there is particular attention to ovarian cancer given the gravity of delayed diagnosis.

Keywords: Adnexal mass, postmenopausal, ovarian cancer, ROMA, HE4, CA125, OVA.
