“Women have two ovaries that produce eggs as well as estrogen and progesterone. Ovarian cancer usually goes unnoticed until it has spread into the abdomen and pelvis, which makes it harder to treat and many times deadly. Ovarian cancer types include germ cell tumors, stromal tumors, and epithelial tumors. Epithelial tumors make up about 90% of ovarian cancers, and begin in the thin layer tissues on the outside portion of the ovaries.
This kind of cancer is most commonly diagnosed in women ages 50-60 and symptoms include weight loss, changes in bowel habits, frequent urination, abdominal swelling or bloating, and pelvic pain. ”
