Epithelial ovarian neoplasms of low malignant potential, also called borderline ovarian tumors, have various features of malignancy, but they do not invade the ovarian stroma.
Women with these tumors usually are younger when diagnosed and have better prognoses than do women with invasive tumors.
There have been few epidemiologic studies of borderline tumors, and it is unclear whether there are etiologic differences between the two types of tumor behavior.
Combined data from nine case-control studies, conducted from 1974 to 1986 and representing 327 white women with tumors of low malignant potential and 4,144 white controls, were used to evaluate the relation between these tumors and personal characteristics related to invasive ovarian cancer.
