Abstract

INTRODUCTIONIn the United States, the incidence rate of ovarian cancer was 10.7 per 100,000 in 2014–2018, and the mortality rate was 6.5 per 100,000 in 2015–2019 (Cancer Statistics Center, 2022). Internationally, the mortality rate of ovarian cancer was 3.2–7.10 per 100,000 in 2012 (Malvezzi et al., 2016). Patients with ovarian cancer experience few symptoms in the early stages, and early diagnosis remains challenging (Stewart et al., 2019). At the time of diagnosis, ovarian cancer is often detected at an advanced stage and typically presents at a late stage when the 5‐year relative survival rate is 29% (Reid et al., 2017). Therefore, curative and survival trends have not changed significantly (Stewart et al., 2019).Therapeutic management for ovarian cancer includes debulking surgery, chemotherapy and, rarely, radiotherapy (Chandra et al., 2019). The treatment after diagnosis of ovarian cancer, because of poor prognosis, has a wider range of surgeries than other gynaecological cancers. Chemotherapy is also performed more often than in other gynaecological cancers (Baldwin et al., 2012; Kim et al., 2019).
