The ovaries are unique in the variety of lesions that can arise from them. The complex anatomy and physiology of ovary with constant changes from puberty to menopausal age give rise to number of different cells, which are capable of giving rise to tumors. The present study is a two years, prospective study carried out in a tertiary care hospital. It is a descriptive study which included all specimens of ovarian tumors, diagnosed as surface epithelial origin on histopathological studies. Most patients presented with non-specific and vague symptoms over a period of time. Patients education and awareness among primary care physicians with timely attention and further investigations, can help in early detection of ovarian malignancies in this subset of cases, thereby reducing morbidity and mortality associated with diagnosis in advanced stages.
