Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer, also known as ovarian carcinoma, affects various tissues in the ovary, including the surface epithelium and germ cells. As early symptoms are often non-specific, diagnosis is difficult. In advanced stages, however, symptoms such as menstrual irregularities and characteristic abdominal discomfort such as a bulging abdomen become apparent.
Risk factors include genetic predisposition, advanced age and certain hormone therapies.

Ovarian cancer is usually treated with surgery and chemotherapy. However, integrative medicine measures such as hyperthermia or mistletoe therapy have also proved successful.

In addition to the classic treatments, complementary therapies can be considered in order to improve the success of treatment and reduce side effects. Close co-operation with specialists from different disciplines has proven its worth in the treatment of ovarian cancer.
