Ovarian Tumor Removal Details
The ovaries are the primary organs of the female reproductive system. They are actively involved in regulating levels of hormones that trigger menstruation such as estrogen. The ovaries are also responsible for the release of an egg each month for possible fertilization. Ovarian cancer is a form of cancer where some cells grow out of control and become cancerous in the ovaries of a woman. This growth could also spread to other regions. Although uncommon, this form of cancer is the deadliest type of female reproductive cancer. Some risk factors for ovarian cancer include time spent in ovulation, age, genetics, never being pregnant, and smoking; however, the causes of ovarian cancer are still unclear and lot of research is still being done. If caught early, treatments for ovarian cancer are more effective and easier.
