Different types of tumors in perimenopausal women presenting with ovarian masses at A Tertiary Care Hospital.
Objectives: To determine frequency of benign and malignant tumors among perimenopausal women presenting with ovarian masses at a tertiary care Hospital. Study Design: Descriptive Cross Sectional study. Setting: Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Jinnah Hospital, Lahore. Period: Six Months from August 2017 to January 2018. Material & Methods: A total 127 premenopausal females with ovarian masses visiting Obstetrics & Gynaecology Department, Jinnah Hospital, Lahore were selected. After detailed medical history and clinical examination patients underwent ultrasonography to diagnose status of ovarian masses. Data was entered in self-made proforma. Results: Total 127 patients were selected. Mean age of cases was 48.87 ± 3.04 years, with mean BMI of 26.52±2.43 kg/m2 and obese patients were 30.7%. Out of all 73.2% patients had benign masses and 26.8% patients had malignant masses. Obesity and family history were significantly correlated with malignant tumors among premenopausal women having ovarian masses p-value 0.001. Conclusion: It was observed that the malignant tumors are frequently linked to pre-menopausal women with ovarian masses. Obese and family history positive patients are on high risk of malignant tumors.
