Asymptomatic ovarian tumors in menopausal women do not always require surgical removal. Experts recommend an initial evaluation with transvaginal ultrasound to help characterize the tumor's malignant risk. Low-risk tumors can be monitored with ultrasound, whereas high-risk tumors should be referred to a gynecologic oncologist. Indeterminate tumors require secondary testing with the strategies outlined in this Practice Pearl.
