Low-Dose Aspirin May Help Against Ovarian Cancer
By Steven Reinberg
One low-dose aspirin a day could help women avoid ovarian cancer or boost their survival should it develop, two new studies suggest.
In fact, daily low-dose aspirin -- the type many older women already take to help their hearts -- was tied to a 10 percent reduction in developing ovarian cancer. It was also tied to as much as a 30 percent improvement in survival for ovarian cancer patients, the researchers said.
