OBJECTIVE Our objective was to evaluate the risk for endometrial cancer in relation to reproductive, menstrual, and medical factors. STUDY DESIGN A case-control study of 405 endometrial cancer cases and 297 population controls in five areas of the United States enabled risk to be evaluated. RESULTS A major risk factor was the absence of a prior(More)
Despite the established role of obesity in the etiology of endometrial cancer, limited data are available from analytical epidemiologic studies on the association of risk with dietary factors. A case-control study of 399 cases and 296 controls conducted in five areas of the United States from 1 June 1987 to 15 May 1990, enabled evaluation of risk related to(More)
From 1977 to 1984 the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) conducted a prospective clinical and surgical staging protocol of squamous cell carcinoma of the vulva (n = 637). The patients with superficial (5 mm or less invasion) lesions were the subject of a previous report (n = 272). The subject of this report is on factors that predict groin node metastasis(More)
In a multicenter case-control study that included 403 cases and 297 controls, we examined the relation of past and contemporary body size, including body fat distribution, to the risk of endometrial cancer. The relative contributions of past and contemporary body size were assessed by examining weight and height histories provided by the subjects.(More)
BACKGROUND It has been suggested that identified risk factors for endometrial cancer operate through a single etiologic pathway, i.e., exposure to relatively high levels of unopposed estrogen (estrogen in the absence of progestins). Only a few studies, however, have addressed this issue directly. PURPOSE We assessed the risk of developing endometrial(More)
Analysis of 588 patients with vulvar carcinoma delineated four risk groups by the proportional hazards model. Groin node status (laterality and number positive) and lesion diameter were the only two important independent prognostic factors. The 5-year relative survival rates were 98%, 87%, 75%, and 29% for the risk group categories of minimal (negative(More)
In a multicenter case-control study that included 400 cases and 297 controls, we examined the relation of moderate alcohol consumption to risk of endometrial cancer. We estimated average weekly intake of alcohol during adulthood from the reported frequency of intake of beer, wine, and liquor. The relative risk of endometrial cancer was 0.82 (95% confidence(More)
We examined the relation between physical activity and endometrial cancer using data from a multicentre case-control study involving 405 endometrial cancer cases and 297 population controls. Estimates of recreational (i.e. active sport, walks and hikes) and nonrecreational activity (i.e. house cleaning, climbing stairs and walking or standing on the job)(More)
Serum CA 125 levels were obtained from 55 women with epithelial ovarian cancer before a second-look surgical procedure and serially thereafter. All patients were clinically and radiographically free of tumor at the time of the second-look operation and were followed to clinical recurrence. Median follow-up was 12 months. CA 125 levels obtained at the(More)
