Screening and prognostic factors for ovarian cancer

Stanislav Slavchev, Elis Ismail

Abstract

Ovarian cancer is one of the neoplastic gynecological diseases that is the most difficult subject to screening. This is the reason that most newly-diagnosed cases are at III-IV FIGO stage. The lack of an appropriate screening method affects the oncologic results and, therefore, the ovarian cancer presents with the worst prognosis of all neoplasms of female reproductive organs. This review attempts to discuss some methods for early diagnosis of ovarian cancer, especially in cases with adnexal formation. The prognostic factors in the literature available influencing on patients' survival and treatment outcomes are considered.
