Second Opinion Ovarian Cancer in Phoenix, Arizona, US
Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries, which are two almond-shaped glands located on either side of the uterus. Each patient suffering from ovarian cancer is different that is why the cancer experts at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) have all the necessary experience and training to properly diagnose and develop an appropriate treatment plan according to their specific needs.
An ovarian cancer diagnosis is life-changing and sometimes patients need a second opinion from a different hospital and oncologist. The team of experts at CTCA is able to help the patients make more informed treatment decisions.
Ovarian cancer types
There are more than 30 types of ovarian cancer, grouped into three categories based on where they begin growing in the ovary:
Epithelial ovarian cancer (the most common form) originates in the layer of cells that cover the ovary and the entire abdominal cavity. Treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
Germ cell ovarian cancer begins in the egg-producing cells inside the ovaries. Teens and women in their 20s are more likely to have this type of ovarian cancer. Patients diagnosed with germ cell ovarian cancer can be treated with surgery, radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy.
Sex cord-stromal ovarian cancer originates in the connective tissue of the ovaries, which also produces the female sex hormones.
