Abstract

In ovarian cancer and endometrial cancer the surgeon plays an important role in both the staging procedure and in the removal of as much of the tumour as possible. Although uniform treatment policies have not been developed, a better understanding of the pattern of spread in both tumours allows for accurate staging and can be of help in selecting patients for more extended treatment and saving others from unnecessary overtreatment.
