Background: Ovaries are common site for both benign and malignant neoplasm in all age groups right from intrauterine period to post menopausal age group. Neoplastic disorders or lesions of ovary can arise from Mullerian epithelium, Germ cells or Sex cord Stromal cells. A Total of 100 cases of diagnosed ovarian tumors are included in the study. We have included parameters like Age wise incidence, Nature of Lesion, Frequency & Laterality in this study. Results: Out of 100 cases, 93% cases were unilateral and 7% cases were bilateral. Majority of cases (48%) belong to age group of 20-39 year. 91% cases were benign, 1% case was borderline and 8% were malignant. In benign ovarian neoplasm, serous cystadenoma was the most common followed by mature cystic teratoma and mucinous cystadenoma. In malignant cases, maximum cases were of serous cystadenocarcinoma. Conclusion: Ovarian tumors include a variety of morphological features and show predominance in particular age group. Role of histopathological evaluation remains always important in both diagnosis and management of such cases, particularly in cases of Malignant Lesions in order to save the patient?s life.
