Ovarian Cancer


Who are the women who are at risk of getting ovarian cancer?

The exact causes of ovarian cancer are not known. However, studies show that the following factors may increase the chance of developing this disease : (i) Family history. First-degree relatives (mother, daughter, sister) of a woman who has had ovarian cancer are at increased risk of developing this type of cancer themselves (ii) Age. The likelihood of developing ovarian cancer increases as a woman gets older. Most ovarian cancers occur in women over the age of 50, with the highest risk in women over 60. (iii) Women who have never had children are more likely to develop ovarian cancer


What are the symptoms of ovarian cancer?

The symptoms of ovarian cancer are almost similar to those of benign ovarian conditions such as menstrual disturbances, abdominal discomfort. At times, the symptoms may be vague such as loose motions, weight loss etc. Thus, you should see your doctor promptly.

What are the treatment options for ovarian cancer?

Treatment options and outcomes for patients who have ovarian cancer depend on the exact classification of the cancer and how far it has spread before it is diagnosed.
