Abstract

BACKGROUND: Benign cystic mesothelioma (BCM) is a rare tumor that typically occurs in reproductive-aged women. The mainstay of treatment is surgical resection. CASE: Here we present 2 cases of BCM: one a recurrence managed conservatively and a second that required surgery for rapid growth and pain. CONCLUSION: There is evidence that delaying surgical management for fertility or comorbid conditions is a reasonable alternative.
