In routine gynecological practice, benign tumor mimicking malignancies are rarely thought of as differential diagnosis. It is always mandatory to consider malignancy as the first diagnosis so that the clinician's approach will be with a bird's eye view. The diagnosis of malignancy will have a pronounced bearing mentally for the affected women. We confronted one such interesting case in our institution. The patient had undergone prior surgeries and recovered from serious postoperative complications. In addition, she poses a higher risk for anesthesia. Above all, to counsel the patient and the family about the impact of the current problem is a Herculean task. The scenario takes a different upturn with the histopathology report. The effort by the multidisciplinary team proves fruitful.
