    Here would be my differential diagnosis:

    Hernia
    Ectopic pregnancy --> get pregnancy test
    Tubo-ovarian abscess
    Ovarian cyst or carcinoma
    • Yolk sac tumor (usually unilateral) --> get AFP and Alpha-1-antitrypsin
    • Embryonal carcinoma (unilateral) --> get AFP and beta HCG


    For imaging, I would start off with an ultrasound
    Other labs, I would get ESR to rule out abscess
    for reading!

    Here Is The Complete Case.
    (1) History- 17 Yr Girl Unmaried Came Vt Complaints Of Fever,vomiting,abd Pain Of 4 Days Duration. She Complained Of Menorrhagia Also.
    (2)gen Exam.- She Was Pale Nd Had Polio
    (3)local Exam-firm Mass Upto The Level Of Umbilicus On Left Side. Freely Mobile Side To Side. Smooth Wall Nd Surface.
    (4)ultrasound- Showed Multiple Echogenic Mass
    First Suspected Dub And As She Was Pale Blood Transfusion Done. But Later Diagnosed As Ovarian Cyst.
    On Laparotomy Omentum Is Covering The Cyst When Traced Down It Was Twisted Two Times., Severely Inflammed Nd Blood Got Collected In The Cyst. For God Sake Omentum Adhered To Cyst Otherwise Cyst Would Have Ruptured. Finally Mass Was Removed. Remember When The Cyst Is Twisted Dont Do Untwisting If U Do That Thrombi Already Formed Will Dislodge As Emboli. Also Dont Rupture The Mass Or Allow The Contents To Spill Into Peritoneal Cavity
