Ovarian Cancer Treatment

Treatment options for ovarian cancer
Women should always discuss treatment options with a physician, because optimal treatment will vary depending on the stage of disease, the woman’s age, and the overall condition of her health. There are three main types of treatments for ovarian cancer:

Surgery
Surgery to remove the cancerous growth is the primary method for diagnosis and therapy for ovarian cancer.

Chemotherapy
Chemotherapy relies on the use of drugs that travel through the bloodstream to kill cancerous cells both in and outside of the ovaries. It is used as a follow–up therapy to surgery.

Radiation therapy
Radiation therapy uses high–energy X–rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.
