DiagnosisA pelvic mass is found during a routine pelvic exam. When a pelvic mass is detected some of the following investigations are carried out. These investigations are important to make decisions about future treatment. These include:

- Blood tests (CA125): Tests to measure substances in the blood and help confirm the diagnosis.
This depends on the clinical and ultrasound findings.
