Ovarian or ovarian cancer is the second most common cancer affecting female reproductive organs. Although it is usually seen in women between the ages of 50-65, it can affect women of all ages.
There is no specific symptom of ovarian cancer, it is usually detected during routine controls or during the investigation of patients with abdominal distension, weakness and weight loss complaints.
