Ovary Cancer Resource Center. One characteristic of inherited ovarian cancer is that it occurs at a significantly younger age than the non-inherited form. Until recently, there was little evidence that the origin of ovarian was genetic.
It has been proposed that genetic changes causing cancer occur in two categories of normal cellular genes, proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. Ovarian cancer has a high frequency of metastasis yet generally remains localized within the peritoneal cavity. The debulking of very large metastatic masses makes no sense from the oncologic perspective. Inactivation or loss of these genes contributes to development of cancer by the lack of a functional gene product. Genetic changes in proto-oncogenes facilitate the transformation of a normal cell to a malignant cell by production of an altered or overexpressed gene product. Despite these problems, tumor grading has been attempted but has failed to demonstrate prognostic significance.
