Abstract

Symptoms of ovarian cancer are generally non-specific and delays in diagnosis are commonplace. Little has been published on factors that influence the stage at ovarian cancer diagnosis such as age, histology, or ethnic/racial group. This paper describes the stage-specific rates of ovarian cancer by racial and ethnic group.
