Ovarian Cancer Clinic

Ovarian cancer is cancer that starts in the ovaries. The ovaries are the female reproductive organs that produce eggs. There are three main types of ovarian tumors:

  • Epithelial tumors
  • Germ cell tumors
  • Stromal tumors

Experts at Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center understand ovarian cancer and work as a team to design the best treatment plan. A typical team is made up of gynecologic oncologists, radiation oncologists, social workers, and nurses. Our Cancer Center is one of only two in the state where patients are treated by board-certified gynecological oncologists. Treatment plans may include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy (biological therapy) - works to boost, direct, or restore your body's natural defenses against disease
  • Radiation therapy
  • Surgery
  • Targeted therapy
