Embryonal Carcinoma, Choriocarcinoma and Mixed Germ Cell Tumours

Ovarian embryonal carcinomas, non-gestational choriocarcinomas and malignant mixed germ cell tumors are rare malignant germ cell tumors. These neoplasms are typically diagnosed in young women.

Borderline ovarian tumor (BOT)

Borderline ovarian tumors (BOTs) are epithelial tumors with low grade of malignancy.  BOTs account for 10–15% of epithelial ovarian tumors. These tumors occur in younger women, with almost 30% of patients younger than 40 years, and are often diagnosed at an earlier stage than invasive carcinomas.

Primary carcinoma of the Fallopian Tube

Primary carcinoma of the fallopian tube is one of the rarest gynecological malignancies, accounting for 0.18% to 1.6% of all malignant neoplasms of the female reproductive tract, and typically presents in the 5th and the 6th decades of life. The etiology of fallopian tube carcinoma is unknown.

Molar pregnancy (Placental mole)

Molar pregnancy is a gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD) characterised by abnormal trophoblast development which causes high production of hCG. The molar pregnancy can be complete, partial, symptomatic or asymptomatic. Excessive uterine growth and bleeding may prompt an ultrasound examination.
