9/11 Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is less common among 9/11 responders and survivors, but more serious than other types of 9/11 cancers if not detected early. Early detection is key to successfully treating ovarian cancer. Turley Hansen represents 9/11 female responders and survivors (particularly downtown Manhattan female residents) with ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer of the female reproductive system. Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the ovaries. Women have two ovaries, one on each side of the uterus. The ovaries produce eggs and the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Early-stage ovarian cancer, in which the disease is confined to the ovary, is more likely to be treated successfully. Surgery and chemotherapy are generally used to treat ovarian cancer.
