The aim of the study was to determine a combination of anthropometric variables that would enable better differentiation

between benign and malignant ovarian masses. Prospective study has been performed in a two year period in which

208 women with ovarian lesions were analyzed and correlated with histopathologic surgical findings. We examined the

relation between self-reported anthropometric and other variables height, weight, body mass index – BMI, parity, marital

status, education, age, rural versus urban residence, menopausal status and incidence of ovarian cancer. Age, parity,

marital status and menopausal status individually showed statistical significance.
