Clinico-pathological Features and Treatment Outcome of Malignant Epithelial Ovarian Tumours

Background: Ovarian cancer is the ninth most common cancer in women and it ranks fifth as the cause of cancer death in women. Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) represents the most lethal malignancy of the female genital tract. EOC is typically diagnosed in advanced FIGO (Federation of International Gynaecology and Obstetrics) stages due to lack of symptoms in the earlier stages.
