Researchers Hopeful that Ovarian Cancer Detection Can Be Improved

Oct 23, 2012

Specialists in the field say ovarian cancer can be very deadly, in part because it can be difficult to detect in its early stages. Researchers are hoping to find some more effective ways to diagnose and treat the disease, and Dr. Michael Milam of the Norton Cancer Center in Louisville says he is hopeful that better detection can lead to improved treatment in the future.

Ovarian cancer currently claims the lives of about 15,000 American women each year.

Dr. Milam is among our interview guests for the second segment in our two-part series on ovarian cancer.
