Ovarian cancer occurs around the female reproductive system. Typically arising from the cells near the ovary and fallopian tubes. Feeling pain in which area could signal the disease?
The ovaries are two small organs – the size and shape of an almond – located in the pelvis (lower part of the torso), just behind the pubic area.
Their function is to produce the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone.
They also create, store and release eggs. The eggs then flow down the fallopian tube into the womb – ready for fertilisation.
