The epithelium is the name for the layer of tissue covering a woman’s ovaries. Cancer in the epithelium is by far the most common type of ovarian cancer, accounting for the vast majority of cases. Subtypes include:
- Serous cell epithelial ovarian cancer, which can either be considered low-grade or high-grade and is the most common subtype
- Endometrioid ovarian cancer, which is related to the membrane that lines the uterus (called the endometrium)
- Mucinous ovarian cancer
- Clear cell ovarian cancer
- Unclassified ovarian cancer
The peritoneum is a membrane that encapsulates and guards a number of organs in the abdomen area. In women, the peritoneum also surrounds their reproductive organs. Doctors find that out of the women diagnosed with ovarian cancer, the disease originates in the peritoneum in less than 10 percent of the cases.
While peritoneum cancer can spread and affect the ovaries, it can also develop in other parts of the peritoneum tissue.
