Experts at Nanavati remove a large
Dermoid Cyst from a 54-year-old woman

A 54-year-old working woman with an active exercise routine was living a normal life. Her daily workout included 8 km walk every day. The patient noticed a bulge on her stomach. Assuming that, this was due to an increase in weight, the patient increased her work-outs. After 2 months of rigorous exercise, when the bulge did not reduce, the patient consulted her family doctor.

The doctor advised her to get a sonography done. Sonography and CT scan reports revealed a large size cyst in the right ovary. On further evaluation, the patient was diagnosed with a large ovarian tumour measuring 20 X 22 cm X 11 cm i.e. 4840 cm3 volume arising from the ovary. The patient was then referred to Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital.

Since the tumour was painless and did not show any symptom, it remained undetected for months. Unaware of the tumour the patient continued with her routine life. Post consultation it was decided to perform Laparoscopic surgery on an immediate basis. However, the cyst was large and a small incision was made to remove the cyst. The jelly like fluid could not be removed through Laparoscopy. There was gelatinous thick fluid because of which the suction was not possible. Hence, a separate incision was made on the left lower abdomen and the whole tumour was evacuated without any spillage of the fluid. The patient recovered well post surgery and was discharged on the fourth day
