  Purpose

Objectives:

The objective of this study is to delineate and measure the symptom burden experienced by patients with ovarian cancer.

The Primary Aim is to develop and validate an ovarian-cancer module of the M. D. Anderson Symptom Inventory (MDASI-Ovarian Cancer) to measure the severity of multiple symptoms and the impact of these symptoms on daily functioning in patients with ovarian cancers.

The Secondary Aims are:

To develop a detailed description of symptom severity and interference with daily activities experienced by patients with ovarian cancer; To assess the impact of symptom severity on standard functioning and quality of life (QOL) measures, including Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOG PS), Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Ovary (FACT-O), and a single-item QOL scale, in patients with ovarian cancer; To define the qualitative symptom burden of patients with ovarian cancer receiving various treatments.
