The Gynecologic Cancer
Awareness Month conversation continues on the Women’s Healthcast with a
question: What if what we think of as ovarian cancer doesn't actually originate
in the ovaries? Research suggests that in many cases, ovarian cancer may
actually come from lesions on the fallopian tubes. So what does that mean for
detection, prevention and treatment?

chief of gynecologic oncology at the University of Chicago, sat down with the
Women's Healthcast after delivering a special lecture on how this knowledge
changes our understanding of ovarian cancer and informs medical and surgical
strategies for treating the disease.
