Women of Teal is a play on the words "Man of Steel" used to describe Superman. I have found my fellow ovarian cancer survivors to be the strongest, most helpful women in the world. They are truly Women of Teal!
A study published in The Lancet Oncology on February 22, 2012 (Association between endometriosis and risk of histoligical subtypes of ovarian cancer:pooled analysis of case-control studies ) showed that women with endometriosis had a significantly increase risk of low grade serous, endometrioid and clear-cell ovarian cancers. Researchers reviewed data from over 23000 women in 13 different studies who reported endometriosis. Other subtypes ( high grade, mucinous etc ) did not show the association. The study did not show a cause-and-effect relationship. The study recommends future research to understand how endometriosis is transformed into a malignant condition.
