Ovarian cancer causes & risk factors

September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. While it may not get much attention as breast cancer, ovarian cancer is the deadliest of the gynecological cancers. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with oncologist Dr. Martee Hensley of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center about the risk factors for ovarian cancer and prevention measures. Dr. Hensley’s practice focuses on the care of women with gynecologic cancers.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care,” WRVO's health and wellness show Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
