What is Ovarian cancer?
Ovarian cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the ovary, fallopian tube or peritoneum grow in an uncontrolled way.
The ovaries are a pair of organs in the female reproductive system, located on each side of the uterus. They produce eggs and hormones.
Ovarian cancer cells can spread to other parts of the body to form secondary cancers, in a process called metastasis.
