Ovarian Cancer Home > Ovarian Cancer Treatments

There are a few different treatments for ovarian cancer -- namely, surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Often, these modalities are combined. The treatment plan a healthcare provider recommends will be based on the type of ovarian cancer a woman has, her general health, and other factors. 
When considering the different ovarian cancer treatments, do not be afraid to ask plenty of questions or to seek a second opinion. You may even want to consider clinical trials, which are designed to help improve current treatments or develop new ones.
