Ovarian CA Treatment Underused

The cancers that don't announce themselves are the hardest to treat, usually found in stage 2 or 3.

Here's an article about a new and effective treatment that some doctors don't know much about and some patients never hear about.

It involves giving the chemotherapy not into the vein but as a wash in the body cavity containing the organs.  This makes sense to apply it directly to areas where the cancer is most likely to have metastasized.  

Thank you to Denise Grady of the New York Times for this report.
