Also, the surgeon will try to remove as much cancer as possible. The stages of this cancer are organized as follows:
1. Stage I cancer is limited to one or both ovaries.
2. Cancer is stage II when one or both ovaries are affected and have spread to the uterus and/or fallopian tubes or other pelvic areas.
3. Cancer is Stage III when one or both ovaries are affected and have spread to lymph nodes or other areas outside the pelvis but are still in the abdominal cavity, such as the surface of the intestine or liver.
4. Cancer is Stage IV when it attacks one or both ovaries and has spread outside the stomach or in the liver.
Although ovarian cancer is the second most common form of female reproductive cancer, more women die from cancer than cervical and uterine cancer combined
