Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women of all ages. The disease is characterized by the presence of early symptoms such as persistent bloating, pain in the pelvis and lower abdomen.


There are several types of ovarian cancer:

  • Epithelial ovarian cancer which affects the surface layers of the ovary.
  • Tumors of embryonic cells which are formed in eggs.
  • Stromal tumors that develop inside the cells of the tissue connecting the ovaries.
