Description

From the tools that will help establish a swift diagnosis to the risks and benefits of palliative salvage surgery, this refreshingly readable resource captures the key knowledge that every busy healthcare professional needs in order to make better health decisions for patients with ovarian cancer.

When it comes to detecting, diagnosing and treating women who have, or are suspected of having, ovarian cancer, there are significant opportunities for well-informed healthcare professionals to intervene in a meaningful way. Fast Facts: Ovarian Cancer examines the areas that will have the biggest effect in clinical practice, including:

  • the evidence for and against screening
  • the valuable role of genetic testing in identifying at-risk women
  • if and when to operate
  • strategies to overcome platinum resistance
  • the impact of targeted therapies.
