Imaging modalities including ultrasonography (USG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) play a pivotal role in the differential diagnosis of cystic ovarian mass lesions.

Subsequent USG and MRI study showed a large abdominopelvic cystic mass lesion with right mild hydroureteronephrosis. Furthermore, the histopathological investigation confirms the diagnosis of a simple follicular cyst.
Conclusion: Imaging modality collaboration with the histopathological findings may lead to accurate diagnosis of cystic ovarian mass. USG and MRI play a vital role in narrow down the differential diagnosis, which can be further confirmed on histopathological investigations.
