Brenner tumor.

Here is a photomicrograph of a benign ovarian tumor. It is composed of epithelial cells in clusters, within a deep fibrous stroma. The cells closely match the cells that line the bladder, especially when they form little nests under the surface epithelium.

In a Brenner tumor, you may see a "coffee bean nucleus" with a stripe down the middle.
