Understanding Ovarian Cancer

Information on ovarian cancer and frequently asked questions 

Ovarian cancer is an umbrella term for many different types of the disease. Through ongoing research, we are learning so much more about what it is, how it behaves, and how best to treat it. Below are some of the common questions we get asked that may be of interest to you. You may have been diagnosed and searching for more information, a family member, friend or carer of someone with ovarian cancer, or you may just be looking for more infromation on ovarian cancer.

If you have any questions that you'd like to ask that aren't located below, or would like to discuss them further, please reach out to our team of ovarian cancer nurses via the helpline on 1300 660 334 who are available Monday-Friday during business hours AET, or by emailing support@ovariancancer.net.au
