Abstract

An estimated 13,900 women in the United States will die in 2001 from ovarian cancer, the most fatal cancer of the female genital tract. Although this statistic is alarming, only a few descriptive studies of ovarian cancer mortality in the U.S. population have been reported. This paper describes ovarian cancer mortality by ethnic and racial group.
