I understand your concern.

Ovarian cancer is curable only in the initial stages.

Few cases with stage 2 can be cured with combined surgical ,medical and radiotherapy methods.

Beyond stage 2,the cancer is almost incurable.

You can avail these services in OT complex Dept Of Gynaecological Cancer Surgery services at King XXXXXXX Hospital ,Vskp.
