Pain in ovarian cancer patients. Prevalence, characteristics, and associated symptoms

Pain in ovarian cancer patients. Prevalence, characteristics, and associated symptoms Background. The prevalence, characteristics, and impact of pain and other symptoms have not been studied systematically in women with ovarian cancer. Anecdotally, pain has been associated with the onset of the disease and is a common problem among those with advanced cancer; symptoms other than pain appear to be highly prevalent. Given the profound influence of pain and other symptoms on quality of life, the evaluation of these phenomena could provide data relevant to the clinical management of these patients and advance quality of life research in the area of symptom assessment. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Cancer Wiley

Abstract

Background. The prevalence, characteristics, and impact of pain and other symptoms have not been studied systematically in women with ovarian cancer. Anecdotally, pain has been associated with the onset of the disease and is a common problem among those with advanced cancer; symptoms other than pain appear to be highly prevalent. Given the profound influence of pain and other symptoms on quality of life, the evaluation of these phenomena could provide data relevant to the clinical management of these patients and advance quality of life research in the area of symptom assessment.
