Background: A 72-year-old female patient presented to the gynecologist after referral by her general practitioner, with complaints of occasional abdominal discomfort. Besides the vague lower abdominal discomfort and 10 kg weight loss due to loss of appetite, there were no specific symptoms. The medical history was negative, except for a cyst in the breast. Physical examination revealed a palpable large, mobile mass in the right lower abdomen and a deviation of the portion to the left. Otherwise, physical examination was unremarkable.
