    We’ll begin our organization. Most of your ovarian tumors will be of surface epithelial tumors. Ladies and gentlemen, this is where your focus should be. We will talk about specific surface epithelial tumors. I have divided this into tables coming up next. Let’s take a look. Overall, the topic is surface epithelial cell tumors. Overall, the frequency of all of your ovarian tumors, 65-70%. This is where your focus should be. The proportion of malignant ovarian tumors, 90% of your malignant ovarian tumors are surface epithelial. Age group: Early. It could be 20 plus. Now, the types. Serous, mucinous, endometrioid. Let me stop there. Why? Because endometrioid sounds an awful lot like endometriosis. Sounds a lot like endometritis and it sounds a lot like your endometrioma. This is your ovarian tumor. It’s called endometrioid tumor. Would you tell me what the suffix –oid means? Similar to. Leukomoid reaction. Endometrioid. Epithelioid. Right? So here, we have –oid. It looks like endometrium, but it is an ovarian tumor. Of what family? Surface-derived. If you have a surface tumor, how does it like to spread? Surface, likes to seed. What does seed mean? It is going to spread to adjacent structures. Your focus, by the way, with surface-derived epithelial tumor will be on serous, serous, serous. Let’s begin. We have 75% of ovarian tumors are surface derived. Usually women greater than 20. Divided into – we’ll be doing serous, mucinous and endometrioid. We’re not going to go through every single one. We’ll go through the high yield types of our surface. Overall, remember frequency, 65-70%. So we will be going through this methodically. And I want to make sure that I drill home to you those important salient features. The etiology, continuing forward, cystic lesions lined by tall, columnar, cilated epithelial cells filled...
