Ovarian epithelial cancer

Common Name(s)

Ovarian epithelial cancer

Ovarian cancer, the leading cause of death from gynecologic malignancy, is characterized by advanced presentation with loco-regional dissemination in the peritoneal cavity and the rare incidence of visceral metastases ({6:Chi et al., 2001}). These typical features relate to the biology of the disease, which is a principal determinant of outcome ({1:Auersperg et al., 2001}). Epithelial ovarian cancer is the most common form and encompasses 5 major histologic subtypes: papillary serous, endometrioid, mucinous, clear cell, and transitional cell. Epithelial ovarian cancer arises as a result of genetic alterations sustained by the ovarian surface epithelium ({45:Stany et al., 2008}; {44:Soslow, 2008}).
