stage 4 adult granulosa cancer - Granulosa Cell Tumor (Ovary) - Treatment, Diagnosis, Symptoms, Causes


Sep 30, 2009 · Eighty cases of granulosa cell tumors of the ovary were identified over a period of 25 years. Granulosa cell ovarian tumors accounted for 4.3% (80/1,850) of all malignant ovarian neoplasms during the study period. The mean age of patients was 47.6 years (range, 17 to 87 years). The mean gravidity and parity were 3.8 and 2.8, respectively.Cited by: 107. Jan 07, 2016 · The majority of cases of granulosa cell tumor of the ovary are stage I at diagnosis (cancer is still contained within the ovary and has not spread). Stage I granulosa cell tumors of the ovary have been found to have a good prognosis with a 5 year survival rate ranging from 90-100% and a 10 year survival rate ranging from 84-95%.

Granulosa cell tumors are the most common type of sex cord stromal tumor accounting for about 2-5% of ovarian neoplasms. The majority of patients are diagnosed at early stage and have a relatively favorable prognosis. Surgical management of granulosa tumors is based on the stage of Cited by: 10. The stage of a cancer tells you how far it has grown. For sex cord stromal tumours, doctors use the same staging system that they use for other types of ovarian cancer. There are 4 stages, from 1 to 4.

The 4 Stages of Cancer. The 4 stages of cancer can be broken down as follows: Stage 0 means the cancer is in one place. Stage 1 means a small tumor spread to nearby tissue. Stage 2 means the tumor is larger and may have spread. Stage 3 means the cancer may have started to spread to surrounding tissue or lymph nodes in the area. Jun 18, 2013 · Granulosa tumors were described for the first time in 1855 by Rokitansky. These tumors are malignancies with a relatively favorable prognosis. They are characterized by a prolonged natural history and a tendency to late recurrences. The aim of this study is to investigate the epidemiological and pathological characteristics of granulosa cell tumors and to investigate the prognosis factor for Author: Sakina Sekkate.
