    • Ovarian cancer is usually classified into 4 different stages depending on the severity of the cancer. Early stages such as I and II only require removal of the tumor/ovaries. If the condition is more severe, as in stage III or IV, than surgery as well as chemotherapy is used to treat the cancer. Antitumor drugs such as Topotecan and Docetaxel can be used to help treat ovarian cancer.
