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.

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.

“A lovely balance of detail and simplicity ... a concise, comprehensive and accessible update on the management of ovarian cancer, with a nice balance of perspectives from either side of the pond.”
Mr Andy Nordin, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist, President of the British Gynaecological Cancer Society, UK
“A comprehensive go-to guide on ovarian cancer for clinicians, covering everything from the origins of the disease through treatment and recurrence.  It's required reading, particularly given how frequently this cancer can be misdiagnosed.”
