Ovarian Cancer: What You Need to Know

  • Topic Info:At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), we’re here to help you and your loved ones make a more informed treatment decision.

    Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries, which are two almond-shaped glands located on either side of the uterus.

    The ovaries produce the female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, and release eggs during a woman’s reproductive years (the time from her first menstrual period through menopause).

    Many signs of ovarian cancer, such as abdominal bloating, may suggest a gastrointestinal issue.

    Talk with your doctor about ovarian cancer being part of the problem.

    A nationally-renowned oncologist, Dr. Maurie Markman, is here to help you better understand ovarian cancer and the latest advances in the treatment of Ovarian Cancer.
