Ovarian cancer is the second most common type of gynaecologic cancer in uttarpradesh. Apollo Hospital Lucknow is regarded as one of the best centres for treatment of ovarian cancer. The ovaries are composed of three distinct cell types: epithelial cells, germ cells, and stromal cells. Each of these cell types can give rise to different kinds of tumours. 9 out of 10 ovarian tumours originate in the epithelial cells. Epithelial ovarian cancer is the most common, originating in the epithelial cells that cover the surface of the ovaries.

At Apollo Hospital Lucknow we have team of best doctors who can identify, suggest and treat all types of ovarian cancers.

A family history of ovarian cancer is the strongest risk factor for this disease. Women with mutations in the BRCA genes have a particularly increased risk. Some factors - such as having surgery to remove the ovaries, the use of oral contraceptives, and tubal ligation have been shown to help prevent ovarian cancer.

Apollo Hospital Lucknow has best treatment of Ovarian Cancer in Lucknow and Uttar Pradesh. Apollo Hospitals Lucknow has experienced team of Gynecologists, Oncologists and Onco surgeons for best treatment of Ovarian cancer.

Symptoms

SymptoNauseams of Ovarian cancer include:

  • Bloating
  • Pelvic or abdominal pain or cramping.
  • Feeling full quickly after starting to eat or lack of appetite.
  • Indigestion or upset stomach.
  • Nausea
  • The need to urinate more frequently or urgently than normal.
  • A pressure in the lower back or pelvis.
  • Unexplained exhaustion.

Having any of these symptoms does not mean it is cancer, but if one or more of them is noticed for more than two weeks then a doctor must be seen and an immediate health screening is a must.

Diagnosis

Ovarian cancer is usually diagnosed with a pelvic examination and transvaginal ultrasound. A surgical biopsy of the tissue is used to confirm the diagnosis; additional imaging tests may be performed to determine if the disease has spread. At Apollo Hospital Lucknow we can perform biopsy with high precision with CT or MRI it helps in accurate diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer.

Treatment Options

The primary treatments for epithelial ovarian cancer are surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, delivered alone or in combination with another therapy.

Surgery

The standard treatment for ovarian cancer is surgery for diagnosis, staging (determining the extent of cancer), and tumour debulking, or cytoreduction followed by chemotherapy. For cancers that appear to be confined to the ovary, the use of less invasive techniques to remove the tumour(s) is adopted. At Apollo Hospital Lucknow laparoscopic procedures, performed through small incisions made into the abdomen, can be used to biopsy and stage, and also to determine the extent of a cancer.

Depending on the size and location of the tumour, laparoscopy also can be used to remove cancerous tissue, meaning that a more extensive open surgery can be avoided. Such surgical approaches result in shorter hospital stays, a quicker recovery, and lower costs, and are as effective as conventional surgery. For selected younger patients, fertility preservation (retaining a normal ovary and the uterus) can be considered. Early-stage ovarian cancer with minimally invasive surgery is equally effective and accurate as staging during open surgery.

Chemotherapy

To destroy any tumour cells that remain after surgery, chemotherapy is recommended for the majority of women with ovarian cancer. This usually includes a combination of systemic and regional chemotherapy.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy may be given over a period of several weeks. It is rarely used as a primary treatment for ovarian cancer, but is sometimes considered after the removal of a recurrent tumour or in the treatment of a recurrence.
