Borderline ovarian tumors occur in about 10–16% of all epithelial ovarian tumors. However, it has a good prognosis when compared with other epithelial malignant tumors. Out of all the types, serous borderline tumor is the most common type, found bilateral in 30% of the cases. Management is tailored based on physical examination, radiological findings, and histopathology report. Even though the diagnosis is based on histopathological findings, pre-operative evaluation, especially in younger women, plays an important role in selecting less radical treatment. Here is a case of a borderline ovarian tumor, which was managed considering her age, marital, and fertility status.
