Abstract
This volume is an up-to-date resource on the international state-of-the-art in the diagnosis and management of ovarian cancer. While this devastating disease has been considered mainly a disease of the Western hemisphere, the book moves beyond our conventional understanding and embraces knowledge from around the world. It focuses on recent advances in diagnosis, including genetic screening; improvements and expanded choices in management, such as gene therapy and the optimization of chemotherapeutic agents; and the latest laparoscopic and robotic surgical techniques. Further chapters address histopathologic features of this disease, and related psychosocial and quality of-life-issues.

Cancer occurs when the cells in our body grow and divide in an uncontrolled way. There are several reasons why an individual may develop cancer and most cases of cancer are sporadic. For other people, cancer tends to run in their family. Familial cancer may be due to environmental factors, genetic factors, or to a combination of both of these.
