OVARIAN CANCER

Introduction of Ovarian Cancer:-

  • Ovarian cancer is a disease in which malignant or cancerous cells are found in the ovaries.
  • Ovaries are two almond-shaped glands located on either side of the uterus.
  • The ovaries produce the female hormones, i.e. estrogens and progesterone, and release eggs during a woman’s reproductive years (the time from her first menstrual period through menopause).
  • Most ovarian cancers are either ovarian epithelial carcinomas (cancer that begins in the cells on the surface of the ovary) or malignant germ cell tumours (cancer that begins in egg cells).
  • The cause of ovarian cancer in most of the cases are unknown i.e. no known cause present.

Types of Ovarian Cancer:-

There are several different types of ovarian cancer which are classified according to the types of cells from which they start. Ovarian cancer tumour can start from three common cell type,

  • Surface Epithelium- cell covering the lining of ovaries
  • Germ cells- cells that form eggs
  • Stromal cells- cells that release hormones and connect the different structures of ovaries.
  • Common epithelial tumour: – Epithelial ovarian tumours develop from the cells that cover the outer surface of the ovary. Most epithelial ovarian cancers are benign in nature that is non-cancerous. Unfortunately, almost 70 percent of woman with common epithelium ovarian cancer are not diagnosed until the disease spreads in advanced stage. Epithelial ovarian carcinomas accounts for 85-90 percent of all cancers of ovaries.
  • Germ cell tumour– ovarian germ cell tumour develops from the cell that produces egg. Most germ cells are benign (non cancerous) and some are malignant (cancerous) in nature. Germ cell malignancies occur most often in teenagers and women who are in their 20s.
  • Stromal tumours– Ovarian Stromal tumours are rare types of tumours that develop from connective tissue cell that holds the ovaries together and those that produce the female hormones i.e. estrogen and progesterone.
  • Primary peritoneal carcinoma– Primary peritoneal carcinoma is closely rated to common epithelial carcinoma. It develops in the cell from the peritoneum (abdominal lining).

Basic Pathology of ovarian Cancer:-

These are the stages of ovarian cancer:

  • Stage I: Cancer cells are found in one or both ovaries. Cancer cells may be found on the surface of the ovaries or in fluid collected from the abdomen.
  • Stage II: Cancer cells have spread from one or both ovaries to other tissues in the pelvis. Cancer cells are found on the fallopian tubes, the uterus, or other tissues in the pelvis. Cancer cells may be found in fluid collected from the abdomen.
  • Stage III: Cancer cells have spread to tissues outside the pelvis or to the regional lymph nodes. Cancer cells may be found on the outside of the liver.
  • Stage IV: Cancer cells have spread to tissues outside the abdomen and pelvis. Cancer cells may be found inside the liver, in the lungs, or in other organs.

Clinical presentation of ovarian cancer:-

The signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may be different for each woman. Because of the ovaries proximity to the bladder and the intestines, gastrointestinal symptoms often occur. Common symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:

  • Abdominal pressure, fullness, swelling or bloating
  • Pelvic discomfort or pain
  • Persistent indigestion, gas or nausea
  • Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation
  • Changes in bladder habits, including a frequent need to urinate
  • Loss of appetite
  • Increased abdominal girth or clothes fitting tighter around your waist
  • A persistent lack of energy
  • Low back pain

Diagnosis of ovarian cancer: –
There are certain tests and procedures used to diagnose ovarian cancer include:

  • Pelvic examination: – Pelvic examination is carried out by inspection of the outer part of genitals (vulva), and inserting two fingers of one hand into vagina and simultaneously presses the other hand on abdomen to feel uterus and ovaries. It is also carried out by inserting a device called a speculum into vagina. The speculum opens vagina so that doctor can visually check for any abnormalities present or not.
  • Ultrasound: –Ultrasound is carried out by using high-frequency sound waves. It also helps to investigate the size, shape and configuration of ovaries.
  • Surgery to remove samples of tissue for testing: – If other tests suggesting of the ovarian cancer then surgery is recommandaded to confirm the diagnosis.
  • CA 125 blood test: – CA 125 is a protein found on the surface of ovarian cancer cells and some healthy tissue. Many women with ovarian cancer have abnormally high levels of CA 125 in their blood. However, a number of noncancerous conditions also cause elevated CA 125 levels, and many women with early-stage ovarian cancer have normal CA 125 levels. For this reason, a CA 125 test isn’t usually used to diagnose or to screen for ovarian cancer, but it may be used after diagnosis to monitor how the treatment is progressing.

Treatment of ovarian cancer:-

Treatment of ovarian cancer includes:

  • Surgery
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy- it is rarely used

Surgery for Ovarian Cancer : It involves:
(1) More extensive surgery that includes removing both ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the uterus as well as nearby lymph nodes and a fold of fatty abdominal tissue known as the omentum, where ovarian cancer often spreads.

(2) Less extensive surgery may be possible if your ovarian cancer was diagnosed at a very early stage. In stage I ovarian cancer, surgery may involve removing one ovary and its fallopian tube. This procedure may preserve the ability to have children.

Chemotherapy for Ovarian Cancer:
After surgery, ovarian cancer is treated with chemotherapy. It is carried out by using drugs to kill cancer cells if still present. Chemotherapy may also be used as the initial treatment with advanced ovarian cancer. Chemotherapy drugs can be given in a vein (intravenously) or injected directly into the abdominal cavity, or both methods can be used. Chemotherapy drugs can be given alone or in combination.

Apart from this line of treatment alternative treatment can also be used. It includes:

  • Local therapy: Surgery and radiation therapy are local therapies. They remove or destroy ovarian cancer in the pelvis. When ovarian cancer has spread to other parts of the body, local therapy may be used to control the disease in those specific areas.
  • Intraperitoneal chemotherapy: Chemotherapy can be given directly into the abdomen and pelvis through a thin tube. The drugs destroy or control cancer in the abdomen and pelvis.
  • Systemic chemotherapy: When chemotherapy is taken by mouth or injected into a vein, the drugs enter the bloodstream and destroy or control cancer throughout the body.
