Ovarian cancer: Tumor coatings of the liver are very frequent in ovarian cancer. They are readily ablated safely at the time of primary debulking. Ovarian cancer can invade the liver but happens through blood-borne spread not direct invasion.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
