Answer

Answer

Borderline tumors, as with other ovarian tumors, are difficult to detect clinically until they are advanced in size or stage. In one study, the most common presenting symptoms were abdominal pain, increasing girth or abdominal distention, and abdominal mass. Approximately 23% of patients were asymptomatic.
