What Is Ovarian Cancer?
Ovarian cancer is cancer that forms in tissues of the ovary. The ovaries are the pair of female reproductive glands on each side of the uterus in which eggs (called ova) are produced. Ovaries are the main source of a woman’s female hormones, estrogen and progesterone. Nearly nine out of 10 ovarian cancers are ovarian epithelial carcinomas (cancer that begins in the cells on the surface of the ovary). Another type of ovarian cancer is malignant germ cell tumors (cancer that begins in egg cells). About one in 20 ovarian cancers are germ cell tumors.
