Management of Adnexal Masses in PregnancyHOROWITZ, NEIL S. MDClinical Obstetrics & Gynecology: December 2011 - Volume 54 - Issue 4 - p 519–527 doi: 10.1097/GRF.0b013e318236c583 Cancer In Pregnancy Abstract Author Information Abstract The identification of a pelvic mass during pregnancy can often change a time of happiness and exciting anticipation to 1 of anxiety and fearful unknown. Although diagnosed more commonly with the implementation of ultrasonography as part of routine prenatal care, discovering an adnexal mass during pregnancy remains a rare event. Fortunately, the majority of masses are benign and rarely negatively impact pregnancy outcomes; however, no specific protocols exist for the appropriate management of these women. This study will review the most current incidence, management, and outcomes for women diagnosed with an adnexal mass during pregnancy.
