Abstract

Early diagnosis resp. prophylaxis of ovarian cancer is possible by removal of all postmenopausal cysts (adnexae plus cystic pathology) of more than 3 cm diameter and of premenopausal cysts showing persistence or progression after 6-8 weeks of sonographic control after the primary examination. The presented retrospective study revealed 2,5% malignancy in premenopausal cysts and 19,5% in the postmenopause. The removal of intact cysts is mandatory. Different technical methods are discussed. In the presented study there were no false negative findings, the rate of unnecessary operations was 5,6%.
