Overview

Surgery is the main treatment for most ovarian cancers it is a process of removing the cancerous tumor from the ovaries. The surgery depends on how extreme cancer has an extent in the body and the patient’s general health, the extent of the surgery is decided. In maximum cases, ovarian cancer treatment includes surgery followed by chemotherapy.

To operate the actual surgery your doctor will first diagnose the kind, stage, and grade of cancer and then decide the course of the surgery.  It can involve removing one ovary or removing both the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the uterus. If the cancer is advanced, the doctor will first perform debulking (removing the tumor as much as possible), followed by chemotherapy. 

Ovarian cancer might also spread outside the ovaries which might affect other body parts as well. In such cases, your doctor might have to perform additional surgeries like:

  •   Cholecystectomy
  •   Hysterectomy (Removing the Uterus)
  •   Resection of bowel and/or other structures in the belly
  •   Lymphadenectomy (elimination of affected lymph glands)
  •   Splenectomy
  •   Appendectomy
  •   Omentectomy (Removal of the fat layers that cover the intestines)

Symptoms

It can be difficult to detect ovarian cancer at an early stage as the symptoms of ovarian cancer are non-specific. In most of the cases, by the time ovarian cancer is detected, it has already spread to other parts of the body. However, patients should be aware of the following indications in their body and consult the doctor at the earliest if there is:

  •   Regular fatigue feeling
  •   Pain during sex
  •   Sudden weight loss or weight gain in the abdominal area
  •   Change in bladder habits like an increase in frequency or incontinence
  •   Severe lower back pain
  •   Swelling or bloating in the stomach
  •   Constant abdominal or pelvic pain
  •   Loss of appetite, feeling full very quickly or constipation
  •   Abnormal changes in the menstrual cycle
  •   Women who are experiencing a combination of these symptoms regularly for a few weeks must visit their gynecologist for a cancer screening immediately.
