Types of Cancer

Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is cancer that forms in the tissues of the ovary. It is most common in older women. In the early stages of ovarian cancer, there are often no symptoms.


Some women experience abdominal bloating, cramping or pain in the pelvic area. They may also experience indigestion or have to urinate more frequently. While these symptoms may not be ovarian cancer, if you experience them, you should contact your doctor. The earlier ovarian cancer is diagnosed, the more successful the treatment.
