Comprehensive care for uterine cancer

The ovaries have several layers of cells that make up the organs. Ovarian cancer is when cells in any of these layers begin to grow at a rapid and uncontrollable rate. These cells begin to clump together and develop into tumors. Some of these tumors become cancerous. Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women.

Many of our Baylor Scott & White Health locations offer dedicated navigators to help guide you through your treatment plan, collaborate with your physician and make appointments as necessary. Our navigators can also offer referrals to other sources of support and aid with emotional needs.
