Ovarian cancer often starts silently, not showing symptoms until its later stages. Find out what you should watch for.
The types of ovarian cancer are grouped by three main types of cells in the ovaries, and a tumor can develop in any of them.
An ovarian germ cell tumor is a growth in a woman's ovaries. Most of these tumors aren’t cancer.
Ovarian epithelial cancer is the most common type of ovarian cancer. It begins on the outside of the ovaries.
Ovarian low malignant potential tumors start in the tissue that covers the outside of the ovary. They usually grow slowly.
