Abstract: Owing to the development and improvement of growing number of conservative surgeries like laparoscopic surgery, the ultimate diagnosis of an ovarian mass is considered to be an important mission in gynecologic practice. The degree of suspicion for malignancy in a given mass is based largely on imaging appearance. Suspicious ovarian masses should be evaluated preoperatively to know their nature and behavior, which in turn persuade the choice of type of surgery. Evaluation of the suspicious ovarian mass should include clinical evaluation and imaging techniques The study was planned in Department of Pathology in Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital, Darbhanga, Bihar from Jun 2017 to Dec 2017. Total 50 females diagnosed with the ovarian tumours were enrolled in the present study. The study clearly shows surface epithelial tumours were the most common of all ovarian tumours. Benign Ovarian Tumors are more common than malignant ovarian tumors in the present study, and Benign Surface Epithelial Tumors are the most common type of benign ovarian tumors followed by Benign Germ Cell Tumors. The relative frequency of incidence of ovarian tumours is known to be different for western and Asian countries; we have additionally observed intra-regional variations in incidence rates within Asia. It is, therefore, suggested that further efforts must be made to identify region-specific risk factors for ovarian oncogenesis.
