Ovarian tumors during pregnancy are very rare; however, a cancer diagnosis causes distress to the couple. Reassurance is paramount, and the first consideration should be given to the safety of the mother.

It is imperative to care for the patient with a multidisciplinary team that includes a high-risk obstetrician, a gynecologic oncologist, and a medical oncologist specialized in gynecologic cancers.
