Ovarian Cancer Disease Basics
"The body is made up of many types of cells that grow and divide in a controlled way to produce more cells as they are needed to keep the body healthy. When cells become old or damaged, they die and are replaced with new cells.
Sometimes the genetic material (DNA) of a cell becomes damaged or changed, producing mutations that affect normal cell growth and division; cells do not die when they should and new cells form when the body does not need them. The extra cells may form a mass of tissue called a tumour.
Cancer is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissue in the body."
