Ovarian cancer, often called the "silent killer," is poorly understood by researchers and often does not even arise in the ovaries, a U.S. panel said Wednesday.Ovarian cancers kill about 14,000 women each year in the United States, where some 21,000 women are diagnosed annually with what is the nation's fifth most common cancer.About two in three women who are diagnosed with the cancer learn of it only once it is already advanced and has spread beyond its initial site.Another challenge involves the relative rarity of ovarian cancer.Most women with ovarian cancer are initially treated with platinum-based chemotherapy.
