  author={Waldemar A. Schmidt},
Two fundamental and inextricably interrelated issues limit understanding of ovarian malignancy. Clinically, we can neither recognize early lesions nor ascertain their potential. Hence, ovarian cancer management depends upon a “recognition/classification” paradigm wherein tumor recognition, classification and therapy depends upon the morphology of advanced lesions. There is a parallel inability to fully describe the participants and processes of early ovarian development, making it impossible to… CONTINUE READING
