    00:01 Here, we’ll take a look at ovarian tumors.

    00:04 With ovarian tumors, 6% of cancers in female are ovarian tumors.

    00:11 By the time we’re done with this, I'll give you a proper organization and I’ll tell you where to focus with ovarian tumors because it is a lot of information.

    00:18 There’s no doubt about that.

    00:19 But if you have proper organization, trust me, it doesn’t seem so bad.

    00:25 Eighth most common form of cancer of women in the United States.

    00:30 Usually detected late.

    00:32 Why? Well, because the patient is pretty much asymptomatic.

    00:36 And by late, well, we had this discussion earlier, neoplasia – Just to make sure we’re clear – that ovarian tumor and cancer, it may begin early at the age of 40 or 45.

    00:49 That’s pretty early.

    00:51 What do you think the median age of presentation is in the U.S.? Sixties.

    00:56 Wow! Yeah.

    00:57 That’s almost 20 years of an active tumor in the ovary.

    01:01 I don’t care how benign it’s been.

    01:03 If it remains active for 20 years, of course it then becomes malignant and kills your patient.

    01:10 Look at this.

    01:11 Fifth most common cause of cancer death overall.

    01:16 One, two and three in a female.

    01:18 Remember, one, lung.

    01:19 Two, breast.

    01:20 Three is going to be colorectal.

    01:22 Five, right up there.

    01:24 Amazing! Pathogenesis: Responsible for almost half of deaths from cancer of female genital tract, ovarian tumor.

    01:35 What we’ll do here, and I’ll show you a picture, is to then categorize and organize.

    01:40 I would prefer to show you the picture so that you’d clearly see where your emphasis will be and should be with ovarian tumors.

    01:49 Risk factors before we get to the organization.

    01:52 Risk factors: Nulliparity.

    01:54 Family history.

    01:55 BRCA1 and BRCA2.
