Answer

In 10%-15% of cases, acute abdominal symptoms may be the presenting complaints for patients with rupture of their mass, hemorrhage into the mass, or torsion of the ovary.

Adverse effects from chemotherapy can be expected but generally are well tolerated. Specific adverse effects vary with the type of chemotherapy given and have been discussed in In/Out Patient Meds and Medication.
