The term "malignancy" refers to cancerous cells that have the ability to spread to other sites in the body (metastasize) or to invade and destroy tissues. Malignant cells tend to have fast, uncontrolled growth due to changes in their genetic makeup. Malignant cells that are resistant to treatment may return after all detectable traces of them have been removed or destroyed. In medical school, future physicians are taught the phrase "primum non nocere", first do no harm. That adage motivates every physician, every healthcare provider, to go to great lengths to avoid an incorrect diagnosis for a patient. As a gynecological surgeon, that adage is put to the test with every operative patient dealing with a pelvic mass. Encountering an undiagnosed malignancy during and anticipated benign surgical intervention is stressful for the surgeon, but devastating to the unprepared patient. Recently, attention has focused on uterine morcellation at time of laparoscopic hysterectomy. Stemming from the inadvertent morcellation of a leiomyosarcoma in a patient presumed to have been benign fibroids, the question has arisen of informed consent disclosures versus the appropriateness of a selected surgery when the possibility of a malignancy exists.
