It is a malignant tumor that develops from different parts of the ovary: most are from the epithelium (outer wall) and other from germ cells (egg cells). The risk of developing ovarian cancer is increased with age and decreased with the number of pregnancies. This is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among women and the leading cause of death from gynecological cancer. Some genetic predispositions have been reported.
