Microscope Ovary with mucinous signet cells!

A 46-year-old woman, nulliparous, complained of pelvic pain and a round mass, distending the right, lower, abdominal wall. Abdominal-pelvic ultrasound examination and computed tomography scan (CT), showed a solid mass in the right ovary (8x6 cm) and in the left ovary (6x4 cm). A total laparo-histerectomy with bilateral salpingooophorectomy was performed. Microscopically, both ovaries showed signet-ring tumour cells, single or in nests, with eccentric nuclei and large, pale, vacuolated cytoplasm, surrounded by a stroma, densely fibroblastic or oedematous. AB-PAS stains revealed the presence of mucins in the cytoplasm of signet-ring cells. What is the most likely source of the disease?

A) Ovarian epithelial carcinoma
B) Arrhenoblastoma of ovaries
C) Adenocarcinoma of pancreas
D) Serous cystadenocarcinoma of ovaries
E) Adenocarcinoma of stomach
F) Adenoid cystic carcinoma of parotid gland
G) Clear-cell ovarian tumor
H) Renal cell carcinoma
