The adnexal mass.

Hall DJ, Hurt WG


Accurate diagnosis of the adnexal mass requires knowledge of embryology, anatomy, and physiology. Bimanual pelvic examination remains the primary and most practical means of detecting and evaluating adnexal pathology. Selective use of diagnostic techniques will help determine the nature and extent of involvement. Prompt and specific diagnoses facilitate therapy and improve results.
