To know the clinical and histopathologic profiles of ovarian tumors. METHODS: 822 women undergone operations for their ovarian tumors were enrolled in this study from July of 1996 to June of 2004 at Inha University Hospital in S. Korea. Incidence, age, laterality and size were analyzed according to their histopathologic results. RESULTS: Among 822 women, there were 2.1% of non-neoplastic ovarian cysts, 81.0% of benign tumors, 4.4% of borderline tumors, and 12.5% of malignant tumors. Among benign tumors, 48.2 were cystic teratomas, 22.5% were mucinous, and 19.4% were serous tumors. Among borderline tumors, 52.8% were mucinous and 42.2% were serous. Among malignant tumors, 25.2% were serous and metastatic, respectively, and 18.4% were mucinous. The average and median age of non-neoplastic cysts were 39.1 +/- 12.7, 41 years old, those of benign tumors were 38.2 +/- 18.4, those of borderline tumors were 33.4 +/- 16.7, 28, and those of malignant tumors were 47.8 +/- 15.4, 49. The bilaterality of benign tumors was 10.7%, that of borderline were 16.7%, and that of malignant were 24.2%. The average and median diameter of non-neoplastic cysts were 3.2 +/- 1.4 cm, 3 cm, those of benign tumors were 8.1 +/- 4.3 cm, 7 cm, those of borderline tumors were 13.5 +/- 7.8 cm, 12 cm, and those of malignant tumors were 10.2 +/- 6.1 cm, 9.3 cm. CONCLUSION: We analyzed clinical and histopathologic data of 822 ovarian tumors.
