Caption: Ovarian carcinoma. A cut specimen of an ovary filled with carcinoma (white). The normal stroma and follicles of the healthy ovary are completely obliterated by tumour growth. This cancer is most common in women over age 50 and in those who have never had children; less common in women who have taken oral contraceptives. The primary form of cancer may spread to other organs. In most cases there are no symptoms until an advanced stage; the first symptom is a vague abdominal discomfort and swelling. Ovarian cancer is treated by surgical removal of the growth, which may involve removal of the ovary itself, fallopian tubes, even the uterus. Surgery is followed by chemotherapy.
