The purpose of this study is to determine whether the Risk of Ovarian Cancer Algorithm (ROMA) is effective in the determination of a woman's risk of cancer when she is scheduled to have surgery to remove a pelvic mass.
After Informed Consent is obtained, an Initial Cancer Risk Assessment will be made. A blood sample will be collected within 30 days of the surgical procedure. Results of the surgical procedure will be collected and analyzed against the CA125 and HE4 results used in the calculation of the ROMA.

All participants will be subjected to Serum measurements of CA-125 by the immunoradiometric assay, Ultrasound evaluation of the Adnexal masses which is described according to origin (ovari...
The purpose of this study is to collect blood, tissue, and health information from individuals with adnexal masses to develop a blood test to detect ovarian cancer.
Venn Biosciences Corporation ("InterVenn") has developed a liquid biopsy that is capable of distinguishing benign from malignant masses in women presenting with adnexal (pelvic) masses, th...
The ability of different methods to discriminate between benign and malignant adnexal masses has been compared in a meta-analysis showing that the IOTA Simple Rules and the IOTA logistic r...
Diffusion-weighted sequences have been routinely performed for years to study the pelvis. They have been so far mainly qualitatively interpreted, that is to say as the absence or presence ...
Gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) is involved in tumor development, progression and chemotherapy resistance. The present study evaluated GGT serum levels as a preoperative predictive marker for ovarian ...
Transvaginal ultrasound and serum CA125 are routinely used for differential diagnosis of pelvic adnexal mass. Use of Human Epididymis 4 (HE4) was approved in the United States in 2011. However, there ...
Nodular hidradenoma is an uncommon cutaneous adnexal tumor arising from sweat glands. In the skin, it usually presents as a solitary dermal nodule; excision is curative in most cases. In rare instance...
Adnexal carcinomas are rare and heterogeneous skin tumors, for which no standard treatments exist for locally advanced or metastatic tumors.
Laminin (Ln)-γ 2, one of the chains of Ln-332, is a marker of invasive tumors and is frequently expressed as a monomer in malignant tumors. Desmoplastic trichoepithelioma (DTE), some types of BCC (in...
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.
A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of a wide range of biomolecules, such as glycoalkaloids, glycoproteins, polysaccharides, and peptides. Positive and negative fast atom bombardment spectra are recorded on a mass spectrometer fitted with an atom gun with xenon as the customary beam. The mass spectra obtained contain molecular weight recognition as well as sequence information.
A benign adnexal neoplasm composed of EPITHELIAL CELLS. They typically manifest as solitary papules and occur only in the skin.
A mass-spectrometric technique that is used for microscopic chemical analysis. A beam of primary ions with an energy of 5-20 kiloelectronvolts (keV) bombards a small spot on the surface of the sample under ultra-high vacuum conditions. Positive and negative secondary ions sputtered from the surface are analyzed in a mass spectrometer in regards to their mass-to-charge ratio. Digital imaging can be generated from the secondary ion beams and their intensity can be measured. Ionic images can be correlated with images from light or other microscopy providing useful tools in the study of molecular and drug actions.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
