Are there different types of ovarian cancer?
The different types of ovarian cancer are defined according to the cells that give rise to the cancer. Cancer that originates in outer layer of the ovaries is called epithelial cancer and is the most common type of ovarian cancer. It can also start in the cells that produce hormones (stromal cell tumor) or the cells that turn into eggs (germ cell tumor).
