Why Knowledge is Power in Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer can be a treatable disease if it is caught early. However, most diagnoses are made at a later stage. Fortunately, an improved understanding of the biology of ovarian cancer has led to better therapies. It has also given women more tools to use to help determine their risk and possibly even keep the disease from developing in the first place.

In this CURE Connections® program, host Philippa Cheetham, MD; Angeles Alvarez Secord, MD (Duke University School of Medicine); and Diane Rose (FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, Inc.), discuss important considerations in genetic testing that may help equip women and their loved ones with the information they need to take a proactive role in the prevention and management of ovarian cancer. Also joining the program to share a personal encounter with an unexpected diagnosis of the disease is Michelle Fladung, a patient with ovarian cancer, and her caregiver and partner, Greg Handerhan.
