Answer

Answer

Gershenson and colleagues' research indicated that the following factors had no effect on progression-free survival:

  • Age

  • Stage

  • Type of surgery

  • Postoperative treatment

  • Coexistence with noninvasive implants

  • Number of invasive implants

No statistically significant differences are found in survival between mucinous and serous tumors. Mucinous tumors are most often stage I at time of diagnosis, and it is quite unusual to find extraovarian disease in tumors of mucinous origin.
