Stage I epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) encompasses five histologically different subtypes of tumors confined to the ovaries with a generally favorable prognosis. Despite the intrinsic heterogeneity, all stage I EOCs are treated with complete resection and adjuvant therapy in most of the cases. Owing to the lack of robust prognostic markers, this often leads to overtreatment. Therefore, a better molecular characterization of stage I EOCs could improve the assessment of the risk of relapse and the refinement of optimal treatment options.

Abstract

Stage I epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) encompasses five histologically different subtypes of tumors confined to the ovaries with a generally favorable prognosis. Despite the intrinsic heterogeneity, all stage I EOCs are treated with complete resection and adjuvant therapy in most of the cases. Owing to the lack of robust prognostic markers, this often leads to overtreatment. Therefore, a better molecular characterization of stage I EOCs could improve the assessment of the risk of relapse and the refinement of optimal treatment options.
