Click here for Dr. Chi’s bio and here for Dr. Bell-McGuinn’s bio.Each year in the United States, more than 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Because ovarian cancer is often detected at an advanced stage when it is difficult to treat, researchers continue to explore new approaches to prevention and early detection.Advances in surgery and chemotherapy have contributed to improved ovarian cancer survival, and it is estimated that there are more than 174,000 ovarian cancer survivors in the United States today. In addition, advances in supportive care have made ovarian cancer treatment more tolerable, leading to improved quality of life.
Understanding ovarian cancer treatment options, the role of different doctors specializing in the treatment of ovarian cancer, and how and when to access new and innovative ovarian cancer treatment options available through clinical trials is essential in order to achieve the best outcome from ovarian cancer treatment.
