Majority of ovarian tumors arise from surface epithelium, germ cell layers and stromal tissue. They give a wide spectrum of tumours which account for fifth most common cause of cancer related deaths in women. Fortunately most of the ovarian tumours are cystic and benign in nature. Solid tumours of ovary are histopathologically very complex and most of metastatic tumours and surface epithelial carcinoma are solid in nature. Solid ovarian tumours can see in all age groups. In our study we found Germ cell tumors were the commonest followed by sex cord stromal tumors. In the view of their complexity and malignant nature clinicians and radiologists should require special attention while exploring the solid ovarian tumours.
