The first book on ovarian cancer for the general reader, this is a comprehensive, compassionate look at a disease millions of people first became aware of with the tragic death of comedienne Gilda Radner in 1989. Dr. Piver, a leading cancer surgeon, discusses the causes of ovarian cancer, preventative measures, classic signs and symptoms, diagnostic tests and genetic screening, the different types of ovarian cancer, the four stages in the disease’s progression, and the most effective treatments. Gene Wilder’s intimate commentary, letters from Gilda’s fans, and excerpts from her book, It’s Always Something, bring a personal perspective to Dr. Piver’s expert medical advice.This remarkable collaboration will help women feel more hopeful, and less scared and alone, when faced with ovarian cancer.
