The following material contains graphic images that may be disturbing. Parents are advised that these images may not be suitable for young children.
The Doctors share an image of a 132-pound ovarian tumor found in a 38-year-old woman. This extremely large tumor reportedly took 25 doctors to remove it! The Doctors share footage of the actual surgery to remove it. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork warns that this could be bloody due to the amount of blood supply a tumor needs!
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landy explains surgeons first incised the skin and then sucked out the fluid as opposed to popping it. Then, they were able to remove the cyst wall.
The tumor started in the surface of the epithelium of the ovary and it grew rapidly, about 10 pounds per week! After they removed the tumor, doctors also had to take out her left ovary, left fallopian tube, and some of the lining of her abdominal cavity. Luckily, they were able to save this woman's uterus and right ovary so she will still be able to bear children.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon notes how much her skin stretched out and assumes they called in a plastic surgeon for reconstruction after the tumor removal.
Typically, ovarian tumors will not get to this point because doctors have the diagnostic technology to detect and remove it before it gets to this point. Thankfully, the tumor was benign and this woman has since recovered and is now back at her job as a teacher.
If you are noticing anything different in your pelvic region, like bloating, frequent urination, or feelings of early satiety, let your doctor know because those could be signs of an ovarian mass. These symptoms are vague so they could be due to something else, but it's important to speak up if something in your body seems off!
