Ovarian cancer is an abnormal and uncontrolled growth of cells in the ovaries. It’s the fifth most common cancer in women in the UK. Ovarian cancer mostly affects women over 50, however it does affect younger women. Screening is currently only available for women who are at high risk of developing the condition due to a strong family history or inheritance of a faulty gene. The treatment depends on the disease stage at diagnosis, however it generally involves a combination of surgery and chemotherapy.
