Patient Q&A Section

Is high intensity interval exercise typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"Although HIIT is often perceived as being 'enhanced' by combining it with other treatments it appears to be used mainly in conjunction with conventional exercise regimes. This suggests that HIIT should not be viewed as an adjunct form of exercise to traditional exercise programmes." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for carcinoma, ovarian epithelial?

"Patients of all ages who have newly diagnosed stage III or IV carcinoma, ovarian epithelial cancer, and adequate performance status and renal function should be considered candidates for clinical trials." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Does carcinoma, ovarian epithelial run in families?

"Ovarian carcinoma is not a hereditary disease. The same is true of breast carcinoma. However, the cancer family history represents a unique and important genetic marker when evaluating familial ovarian cancer." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the average age someone gets carcinoma, ovarian epithelial?

"Most women with carcinoma, ovarian epithelial are younger than 70 years old, however, there is a very small proportion who are older then 80 years old. The average age at diagnosis is 60 years old. Age is an important factor that should be taken into account when making decisions regarding management, prognosis, and outcomes." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

How quickly does carcinoma, ovarian epithelial spread?

"A majority of women diagnosed with carcinoma, ovarian epithelial had Stage III disease at diagnosis. The average interval between onset and diagnosis was 58 months. This is considerably longer than the national average interval between diagnosis and treatment of 3.5 months." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is high intensity interval exercise?

"For women who did not have any cardiovascular conditions there was no significant difference between HIIT and MICE in terms of weight loss or muscle hypertrophy." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

How serious can carcinoma, ovarian epithelial be?

"Results from a recent clinical trial has shown that the risk factors identified were predictive of OS in this multivariate analysis. This observational study suggests that carcinoma, ovarian epithelial, should be considered when evaluating patients with malignancy who present with ascites." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is carcinoma, ovarian epithelial?

"Ovarian carcinoma is a rare malignancy that accounts for only 12% of all cases of primary ovarian neoplasms. Appendiceal adenocarcinoma is the most common form of gastrointestinal malignancy arising from ovarian epithelium. This article provides information on the differential diagnosis of carcinoma, ovarian epithelial." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

What is the survival rate for carcinoma, ovarian epithelial?

"Based on these data, we would estimate that the median survival time for ovarian carcinoma is 11.3 months. We also estimated that approximately 1 out of every 2 cases of ovarian carcinoma will be diagnosed at advanced stages (stage III/IV). Results from a recent clinical trial are similar to those seen for non-small cell [lung cancer](https://www.withpower.com/clinical-trials/lung-cancer), where about 1 out of every 4 cases of NSCLC is diagnosed at advanced stages.  This suggests that our current approaches to screening for ovarian cancers are not effective enough to detect early stage tumors. We believe that this is likely due to the fact that ovarian cancers tend to be more aggressive than other cancers and, therefore, require more intensive screening programs." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Is high intensity interval exercise safe for people?

"HIIT exercise was well tolerated and feasible in this group of postmenopausal women. Further research is needed to establish the optimum duration and intensity of exercise for this cohort." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are the signs of carcinoma, ovarian epithelial?

"• Symptoms related to carcinoma, such as bloating, abdominal distention, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite. • Signs that may be present due to benign conditions, such as pelvic mass, adnexal cysts, and endometriosis. • Lymphadenopathy, which may be due to malignancy. • Metastasis to the ovary, uterus, and lymph nodes. • Cervical and vaginal bleeding. • Coughing up blood. • Fever. • Unexplained weight loss. • Unexplained fatigue. • Abnormal vaginal discharge. • Pain on urinating. • Pain in the lower abdomen aggravated by meals. • Pain in the back of the abdomen." - Anonymous Online Contributor
