The most common complaint of the patients was pain (114, 48.7%), followed by vaginal bleeding or menstural disorders (76, 32.4%), and abdominal şoating (44, 18.3%). The most common tumor was the simple serous cyst (58, %24.7); followed by, endometrioma (44, %18.8). While frequency and percentage of masses that evaluated smaller than 5 cm by transvaginal ultrasound was 53 patients (22.6%) and it was 42 patients (17.9%) by vaginal examination.
