Ovarian Cancer: Advances in Diagnosis and Management presents unique international perspectives on this devastating disease. While ovarian cancer has mainly been considered a disease of the Western hemisphere, this book moves beyond our conventional understanding and embraces knowledge from around the world. The focus is on recent advances in diagnosis, including genetic screening, and improvements and expanded choices in management, such as the optimization of chemotherapeutic agents, gene therapy, and the latest laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques. Further chapters address psychosocial and quality-of-life issues. This book is an excellent resource on the international state-of-the-art in the diagnosis and management of ovarian cancer and is aimed at oncologists, gynecologists, and fellows.
