Treatments for ovarian cancer
If you have ovarian cancer, your healthcare team will create a treatment plan just for you. It will be based on your health and specific information about the cancer. When deciding which treatments to offer for ovarian cancer, your healthcare team will consider:
- type of tumour
- whether you want to get pregnant in the future
