Ovarian Cancer Expert Panel
Ovarian cancer often goes undetected until it has spread within the pelvis and abdomen making it more difficult to treat. Early-stage ovarian cancer, in which the disease is confined to the ovary, is more likely to be treated successfully. A new report from the American Cancer Society finds rates of ovarian cancer have declined by 29% between 1985 and 2014. Ovarian cancer deaths have declined 33% between 1976 and 2015. There has been significant number of approvals for new agents used in treatment of ovarian cancer within past 5-10 years more than ever before, yet we continue to have challenging cases that require novel therapies. Clinical trial participation has led to all of the new discoveries. Please join us to learn more about this disease and have your questions addressed by a panel of experts.
