The mortality from ovarian cancer is responsible for 450-500 cancer deaths annually in Denmark. This high mortality rate has remained unchanged for decades. No effective screening method is available. Oophorectomy per occasionem may reduce the incidence of ovarian cancer. The literature suggests a reduction in the incidence of ovarian cancer of 5.7% which corresponds to approximately 30 women annually in Denmark when OPO is performed at the age of forty or later. OPO also avoids reoperation due to the Residual Ovarian Syndrome, which is detected in approximately 2% of women after pelvic surgery.
