It is well known that ovarian cancer has close genetic links. BRCA1 and 2 make it a condition similar to breast cancer due not only with its association but also because it is commonly seen in families.
But there is no mention of this important fact. Also, how can the role of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in treatment be completely left out? Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women. It is a supremely chemosensitive disease and in this era of multimodal therapy, a majority of the patients are given chemotherapy even in the pre-op phase. And while dealing with open surgery, the important step of total removal of greater omentum has been completely left out.
