    Mayo Clinic Radio: Ovarian Cancer/Family Dysfunction/Tips To Lower Blood Pressure

According to the American Cancer Society, about 21,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year ... and more than 14,000 will die from the disease. September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and on the next program, gynecologic cancer specialist Dr. Jamie Bakkum-Gamez discusses diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer. Joining her is ovarian cancer survivor Cynthia Weiss, who describes her personal journey. Also on the program, family medicine specialist Dr. Elizabeth Cozine  explains the treatment of family dysfunction. And cardiologist Dr. Stephen Kopecky offers 10 tips for lowering high blood pressure  without using medication.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: Ovarian cancer is sometimes called a "silent killer" because its symptoms often go unrecognized until the disease is in an advanced stage.
