Abstract

International comparisons show the highest ovarian cancer incidence among white females in northern and western Europe and in North America. Ovarian cancer incidence rates are generally lower in Asian and African nations. Little information is available regarding the geographic variation in the incidence of ovarian cancer within the United States. This paper evaluates variations in incidence rates for ovarian cancer within four U.S. regions by ethnic and racial group.
