Detailed item info

Synopsis
In 2002, 23,300 women were diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and there were nearly 14,000 deaths from the disease. The disease is deadly because it is usually detected late. However, having crucial information about surgery and best practices can be life-saving. For example, choosing a surgeon from the new specialty of gynecologic oncology for staging and de-bulking surgeries very strongly impacts survival. Women need to consider newer chemotherapy and biological treatments, now in trials. And, women want to hear the stories of others who have been living with the ambiguity of remission.

This guide for ovarian cancer offers women crucial medical information to improve the chance for lengthy remission and cure, as well as emotional support for the journey. Although many ovarian cancers are discovered after they have spread, having information about surgery and best practices can be life-saving. For example, choosing a surgeon from the new specialty of gynecologic oncology for staging and de-bulking surgeries strongly impacts survival. Women need to at least consider newer chemotherapy and biological treatments in research trials. Women also want to hear the stories of others who live with the ambiguity of remission.
