OVARIAN CANCER

ovarian cancer

What is Ovarian Cancer?

An ovary is one of a pair of female reproductive glands in which the ova, or eggs, are formed. Ovarian cancer forms in tissues of the ovary.

Cancer cells sometimes can travel to other parts of the body where they begin to grow and replace normal tissue. This process, called metastasis, occurs as the cancer cells move into the bloodstream or lymph vessels of our body.

As a rule, tumors in the ovary are named for the kinds of cells the tumor started from and whether the tumor is benign or cancerous. There are 3 main types of tumors:

Epithelial tumors: These tumors start from the cells that cover the outer surface of the ovary. Most ovarian tumors are epithelial cell tumors.

Germ cell tumors: These start from the cells that produce the eggs.

Stromal tumors: These start from cells that hold the ovary together and make the female hormones estrogen and progesterone.
