Pelvic mass

After several years of lower abdominal pain, pressure, bloating and discomfort, I was misdiagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction and  severe bladder retention. Several weeks later, scheduled for emergency surgery and had a 14 cm mass, located between the bladder and uterus removed along with the left ovary. Pathology did not identify the mass. At all. Surgeon stumbled upon ultrasound results from five years prior to surgery that clearly identified both ovaries and a 5 cm mass, indicating that this mass could not have originated from the ovary. Has anybody had or heard of a similar experience. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

HI,
Such masses which are placed between the bladder and the uterus can be ovarian cysts. These cysts can be removed separately from the ovaries keeping the normal ovarian tissue intact. Such a mass can also be a para-ovarian mass or arising from adnexal structures. Such lesions are usually benign in nature.
Hope this helps.
