Ovarian cancer, 7th most common cancer in the women worldwide. It is associated with high morbidity and mortality(death) rates amongst all the cancers of the reproductive system.
Ovaries are the reproductive glands in women that lie on either side of the uterus or womb. They consist of three types of cells. When the cells in the ovary grow abnormally and out of control, they form an Ovarian tumor. It could be a benign(that does not invade and spread) or malignant (that have the tendency to invade tissues and spread) tumor. The cancerous tumor undergoes different stages that determine the final course of treatment. The treatment modalities are surgery, Chemotherapy and Radiation therapy that may be used either alone or in combination.
The most common type of ovarian cancer is the Epithelial Ovarian cancer that is further divided into its subtypes with their own characteristic differentiating features.
