Focus on Ovarian and Gynecologic Cancers
Real Housewife and Endometrial Cancer Survivor Camille Grammer
Wants All Women to “Love Your Lady Parts”
Camille Grammer, best known for her role as a “housewife” on the Bravo reality series Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is a third-generation gynecologic cancer survivor. Now, she is on a crusade to raise awareness about gynecologic cancers by encouraging all women to “Love Your Lady Parts.”
Research presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s 50th Annual Meeting suggests that the use of a combination drug therapy can provide significant improvement in women who have recurrent ovarian cancer.
The Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) has released a list of specific tests or procedures that are commonly ordered but not always necessary in gynecologic oncology as part of Choosing Wisely®, an initiative of the ABIM Foundation. The list identifies five targeted, evidence-based recommendations that can support conversations between patients and physicians about what care is really necessary.
