While ovarian masses are common findings in gynecology, unusually huge masses are quite rare. However, such cases can still be found today. Mismanagement of common complaints in patients can be a leading cause of facing such findings. Herein, we introduce a case of a giant ovarian cyst, which was mismanaged in a young virgin female patient. The patient had received gastrointestinal medications for months before being admitted to our clinic, given the bloating sensation and lack of any gynecologic problems. Ultrasonography disclosed a giant cyst, probably related to the ovary, originating from the pelvis and extending toward the diaphragm. After a successful surgery, the ovarian cyst, measuring 40 centimeters and weighing 8 kilograms, was removed. Pathology report revealed serous cystadenoma. Existence of such cases can be an alarming sign for physicians to manage prevalent complaints more seriously, particularly those non-responsive to treatment.
