A 56-year-old woman with a history of ovarian cancer and surgical colostomy presented with a nontender nodule adjacent to her stoma. She was diagnosed 6 years ago with recurrent poorly differentiated serous ovarian carcinoma and underwent total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, with multiple regimens of chemotherapy, most recently with ixabepilone and bevacizumab. Complications included a large bowel obstruction, for which she underwent a transverse loop colostomy 3 years ago.
