Abstract: Background: Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the most lethal gynecologic cancer. The 5-year survival is about 30%, a consequence of failure to establish early diagnosis due to unspecific symptoms. The biomarker serum CA125 and transvaginal ultrasound are used as the “golden standards” for assessing ovarian cysts and pelvic tumors of unknown origin, but early diagnosis is still not achieved and specificity is low. Increased knowledge about EOC specific mutations has revised our understanding of... more
