Cystadenoma tumors arise from ovarian surface epithelium and are the most common type of benign ovarian tumor. There are two types, serous and mucinous. Serous-type tumors comprise 45% of ovarian tumors, are commonly bilateral and are characterized by unilocular cysts lined smoothly by serous fluid-secreting epithelium. Mucinous-type tumors have multi-locular cysts lined by mucus-secreting epithelium.
