Abstract

Ovarian cancer is reported to be the most fatal malignancy of the female genital tract and the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths among women. In the current study, the authors describe ovarian cancer mortality by race and ethnicity in the U.S. during the years 1992-1997, a period comparable to the ovarian cancer incidence data presented in this supplement.
