Ovarian Cancer Treatment – One Essential Step You Must Take

Confident doctor at the reception desk

Last week, I attended a daylong conference at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.  The event was the State of the Art Ovarian Cancer Conference.  It was wonderful to hear of all the advances in the treatment and care of the women who are fighting this terrible disease.

Being associated with a special gynecologic oncologist for many years, I saw firsthand the benefits of the initial surgery for ovarian cancer and the need for an extensive surgical procedure.  At the conference, this was especially emphasized and the long-term benefits were so significant.

It is important to remember that if a loved one or you find yourself in a battle with ovarian cancer, you must find a gynecologic oncologist for your initial surgery and get the best results possible.

New Hope for Women with Ovarian Cancer

A recent medical article reviewed that the ten year survival rate of patients who were treated for ovarian cancer has been increasing and now may be approaching 30%.  This is an exciting report, and it suggests that the current medical and surgical treatments are starting to have a positive effect on survival rates.

Early diagnosis is still most important when dealing with any cancer and especially ovarian cancer.  Remember to visit your health care provider if you are experiencing increased gastrointestinal bloating or if your “stomach” is just not right.
