Girls with excessive make ups may have ovary tumour – doctor
An Obstetrics and Gynecology specialist, Dr
Clarence Oteng Addo-Yobo, has urged parents to
take their girls to a gynecologist first if they
observe signs of mental instability.

According to him, when girls exhibit signs of
mental instability such as putting on excessive
make ups, unprovoked insults, profanity and
quarrelsome behavior, it could be symptoms of
tumour in their ovaries.

He has, therefore, advised all parents and
caregivers not to overlook certain behavioral
changes, particularly in adolescent girls as they
could be symptoms of a life threatening disease.

Dr Addo-Yobo was speaking at the launch of the
Baby Kaafo Project, aimed at providing a digital
platform that gives parents and caregivers access
to reliable and relevant localised information
critical to the development of children in Ghana
and Africa as a whole.

In a plea to parents and caretakers, he advised
that girls are not left to their fate when they
begin to exhibit signs of mental instability.

In addition, he said, girls who display signs of
mental illness should not to be committed
automatically to mental institutions but to a
visit a gynecologist on time for diagnosis since
problems with their ovaries such as ovarian
teratoma could cause them to behave abnormally.

follicles, skin glands, muscle, and other tissues)
that begin in egg cells. Depending on the size and
location of the teratoma, it may cause
complications such as rupture, infection, and

Dr Addo-Yobo explained that the irrational
behaviours shown by some adolescent girls are
attributed to hormonal changes that occur in their

He said the ovarian cyst, which in its complex
form is called teratoma, meaning monster and
secretes some chemicals which disturb the
electrical circulation within the brain result in
adolescent girls showing signs of mental illness.

He, however, said the tumours associated with
teratoma could be surgically removed.

He further stated that these tumors can be
surgically removed.
