Nationally Ranked Cancer Program
As a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we are recognized for exploring new therapies through ongoing clinical trials. We are also part of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of the nation’s leading cancer centers dedicated to improving care for our patients.
Access to Our Clinical Trials
You may be eligible to participate in our ongoing clinical trials, which explore new therapies such as chemotherapy drugs that slow or kill cancer cells, immunotherapy drugs that boost your body’s ability to fight cancer, and biologic therapies that block your body's ability grow cancer cells.
Fertility Services for Cancer Survivors
If you are concerned about the impact of treatment on your fertility, experts at the Duke Fertility Center will work closely with you to discuss fertility preservation treatments, which may include egg freezing, tissue banking, and experimental options that are available through our ongoing clinical trials.
Hereditary Cancer Clinic
The genetic counselors in our hereditary cancer clinic work with you if your family history puts you at increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. We also screen for the presence of genes, including BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 mutations, that may increase your risk of of developing ovarian cancer.
We schedule your appointments quickly and try to coordinate your visit to be as efficient as possible. This means scheduling time with your ovarian cancer team and arranging any necessary imaging and lab work in one convenient location, often during your first visit.
Support for Your Whole Being
Our comprehensive cancer support services range from helping patients minimize the side effects of treatment to coping with the emotional and psychological effects of diagnosis and treatment. Our ovarian cancer survivorship clinic also pulls together a range of resources specially designed to help survivors after treatment ends. View all of our cancer support groups in our event calendar.
