Benign Pelvic Masses

Prevention of Benign Pelvic Masses

The means of preventing benign pelvic masses will vary depending on the type and location of the mass—and in some cases, there are no surefire ways to prevent these conditions. That said, especially for solid ovarian tumors, quitting smoking and maintaining a healthy weight can be good starting points. Check with your Florida Hospital gynecologist for more specific preventative steps related to the type of mass you are concerned about.
