Ovarian Cancer

Overview:

Ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, and primary peritoneal cancer are diseases in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissue covering the ovary or lining the fallopian tube or peritoneum. Ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer may not cause early signs or symptoms. When signs or symptoms do appear, the cancer is often advanced. Signs and symptoms may include the following: pain, swelling, feeling of pressure in the abdomen or pelvis, vaginal bleeding that is irregular, vaginal discharge that is clear, white, or colored with blood, a lump in the pelvic area, and gastrointestinal problems.
