Abhilash Singh, Ishant Sharma

Introduction: Ovary is a common site for tumors, both benign and malignant which causes great morbidity and mortality. The study was undertaken to analyse the clinical profile of ovarian tumors. Material and Methods: This was a hospital based cross sectional observational study conducted for one year from 1st June 2019 to 31st May 2020 in the Department of Pathology, Indira Gandhi Medical College, Shimla. Results: Most of the patients (44.7%) were in the 40-59 years age group followed by 31.6% in 21-39 years and 23.7% in ≥ 60 years age group. Unilateral ovarian tumors were found to be more common 59 (77.6%) in comparison to bilateral ovarian tumors 17 (22.4%). On histological examination, majority of epithelial ovarian tumors were benign 38 (50%) followed by malignant 32 (42.1%) and borderline tumors 6 (7.9%). Conclusion: There is a need for early attention to symptoms and signs and proper evaluation with detailed investigations for ovarian tumors.
