Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death in gynaecological cancer. Through a series of case histories, this text examines the various types of tumour and their changing clinical presentation through the disease process; management is discussed, and optimum treatment procedures are outlined.
Ovarian cancer is the fourth most common cause of cancer-related death in women, and like many other malignancies, its manifestations are diverse, often requiring complex management decisions to be made.
This text examines a range of clinical presentations of ovarian cancer through the use of clinical cases, and each chapter explores one key aspect of the management of this disease integrating recently published data to provide a complete review of the optimum treatment approach. Using clinical cases from their own practice, an international team of experts has contributed to this text, which will provide a useful overview of ovarian cancer for oncologists, gynaecologists and other healthcare professionals involved with this disease.
