Ovarian cancer

Ovarian cancer is a rare cancer that affects the ovaries in women.

It is a type of gynaecological cancer, which is more common in women over the age of 65. There are several different types of ovarian cancer.

The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

In addition, women with ovarian cancers may need complex treatment and should be seen at a specialist centre.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
