Health headlines: Ovarian cancer awareness

Posted: Updated:

(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – Ovarian cancer is known as the silent killer because the warning signs are so vague.
    
This year, there will be close to 23,000 new cases diagnosed and most will be late stage. Because of that, over 15,000 women will die from the disease.

Dr. Ursula Matulonis, Medical Director of the Gynecologic Oncology Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Margaret Winchester, an ovarian cancer survivor And Dana Farber patient, joined the FOX 25 Morning News during National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month to talk about the signs, symptoms and treatments.
