Patients with ovarian cancer who experience disease recurrences can have potentially helpful options from a large array of drugs, each of which can bring on side effects. Luckily, doctors have a variety of ways to relieve or prevent these discomforts. At the same time, scientists are working to develop new treatments that may be both efficacious and easier for patients to tolerate.
The rate of cancer deaths has declined 27% in 25 years, but when it comes to cancers that can be effectively detected early, such as lung, cervical and colorectal, the outcomes for individuals in rural communities around the country are much worse than for those who live in more urban settings.
