Abstract

Ethnic variation in the incidence of cancer makes possible a variety of comparisons that can contribute to the general understanding of cancer etiology and responses to therapy. Such descriptive studies have been useful in generating not only causal hypotheses, but also useful prevention strategies. Racial and ethnic differences in the incidence of ovarian cancer have been reported, but these have been limited to specific geographic areas in the United States. In this paper, ethnic-specific incidence patterns are discussed.
