Abstract

The pathological distinction between cancer of the ovary and cancer of extraovarian tissue can be difficult, and the potential for misclassification of primary ovarian cancer is a concern in epidemiological studies. This paper describes the incidence and distribution of three subsets of extraovarian tumors that have similar symptoms, appearance, and microscopic spread as ovarian cancer.
