During recent years cancer has become a common disease though no human being wants to think of it.

It has become an important medical concept. There are different types of cancer that are being introduced every day.

Different types of cancer attack patients differently. One of the most devastating cancers is ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer affects women and the symptoms can be severe. It is a silent killer. This cancer attacks the ovaries.

While this type of cancer attacks the cells containing the ovary, it typically grows at such an increased rate and it becomes impossible to control the growth.

Ovarian cancer is a cancerous growth arising from the ovary.

Symptoms are frequently very subtle early on and may include: bloating, pelvic pain, difficulty eating, and frequent urination, and are easily confused with other illnesses.

Most (more than 90%) ovarian cancers are classified as “epithelial” and are believed to arise from the surface (epithelium) of the ovary. However, some evidence suggests that the fallopian tube could also be the source of some ovarian cancers.

Since the ovaries and tubes are closely related to each other, it is thought that these fallopian cancer cells can mimic ovarian cancer. Other types may arise from the egg cells (germ cell tumor) or supporting cells.
