Different Types Of Treatment

Whatever the stage of your cancer, your multidisciplinary team of expert doctors and nurses will discuss which treatment is best for you.
The type of treatment you have will depend on:

  • the type of ovarian cancer you have

  • the size of the tumour and how far it has spread (the stage of the cancer)

  • how aggressive your cancer is (how quickly cancer can grow and spread)

  • your age

  • your general health and fitness level.

Not everyone will have the same treatment for their ovarian cancer. While initial treatment may be similar, maintenance therapy and access to other drugs will be different from person to person. Your doctor will work out your treatment with your multidisciplinary team based on the stage and grade of your cancer as well as what is best for you.
