Ovarian Germ Cell Tumors Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Patient Information [NCI] - General Information About Ovarian Germ Cell Tumors
Certain factors affect prognosis (chance of recovery and treatment options).
The prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options depend on the following:
- The type of cancer.
- The size of the tumor.
- The stage of cancer (whether it affects part of the ovary, involves the whole ovary, or has spread to other places in the body).
- The way the cancer cells look under a microscope.
- The patient's general health.
Ovarian germ cell tumors are usually cured if found and treated early.
