Ovarian cancer hormonal and environmental risk effect.
Obstet Gynecol Clin North Am. 2007 Dec; 34(4):687-700, viii.OG

Abstract

To understand the influence of hormonal and environmental factors on the risk of ovarian cancer, it is important to remember the established risk factors and postulated mechanisms that lead to the development of ovarian cancer. Several risk factors have been identified as increasing the risk of epithelial ovarian cancer, including low pariety, infertility, early age of menarche, and late age of menopause. This article discusses the different hypotheses and focuses on hormonal and environmental risk factors, as well the chemoprevention of epithelial ovarian cancer.
