Ovarian cancer information and locations in Mexico

Ovarian cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. This type of cancer starts on the ovaries and usually spreads to the pelvis and abdomen. Early detection helps to increase the success of treatment.
Ovarian cancer begins when abnormal cells in the ovaries start to grow out of control and form into a tumor. The most common types of ovarian cancer are epithelial tumors; these begin in the cells outside the ovaries, stromal tumors; they develop in the cells that produce female hormones, and germ cell tumors; which are growths in the cells that produce the eggs.

The first approach for ovarian cancer is a hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy surgery, which consists of removing as much cancer as possible; the extent of surgery will depend on the type and stage of cancer. Some patients might need chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Ovarian cancer frequent questions

Get answers to our most frequently asked questions and what to expect after the surgery.
Am I a candidate for ovarian cancer surgery?
Surgery is the most common approach to treat ovarian cancer. Your oncologist will discuss with you the type of surgery, as well as other forms of cancer treatment, like chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
What can I expect after surgery?
If both ovaries were removed and you haven’t gone through menopause, you will experience “clinical menopause”. Menopause symptoms can be very intense and difficult to cope with, talk to your oncologist if hormone replacement therapy can be an option.
How will the surgery affect my sex life?
Sex can be different after ovarian cancer surgery. An important organ of the female reproductive system was removed, so it can have an impact on how a woman feels; emotionally and physically. It’s recommended that you wait at least 3 weeks after surgery, as this gives you enough time to recover from surgery.
