Ovarian cancer. Coloured T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a section through the pelvis of a 24-year-old female patient with a large (10cm diameter) malignant (cancerous) tumour (upper left) in the left ovary. Ovarian cancer does not normally produce symptoms until it has reached an advanced stage. The prognosis is poor unless it is detected early. Treatment will involve the surgical removal of tumours, followed by chemotherapy.
