Ovarian cancer

The term “ovarian cancer” is an umbrella term for cancers that affect the cells of the ovary, fallopian tube, or peritoneum. As with other cancer types, these ones act the same. The healthy cells suffer changes, and they grow out of control.

Recent studies indicate that the majority of ovarian, fallopian tube, and peritoneal cancers are high-grade serous cancers and that the cancer typically begins near the tip, or outer end, of the fallopian tubes. After that, it spreads to the ovaries’ surface and has the potential to continue spreading.

The surfaces of the fallopian tubes and the surfaces of the ovaries are made from the same type of cells, and because of this, if you look at them under a microscope, you will notice that they look the same.

These are the types of ovarian cancers that are known to us: epithelial carcinoma, sex cord-stromal tumors, fallopian tube cancer, and germ cell malignancies.
