What are the stages of ovarian cancer?

I'm reading here of various stages of ovarian cancer. What does this mean? My sister-in-law was told she's in Stage IV cancer. She had a hysterectomy with removal of both ovaries and uterus this past March , and they found cancer in all these organs.

She's now on her third chemo treatment. She is 51 yrs old.

How many stages of ovarian cancer are there?

the higher the number the more areas of the body are effected by the cancer.

Re: What are the stages of ovarian cancer?

well, how is she responding to chemo?

keep in mind that There are 3 sub categories per stage. for instance, I have Stage 3c ovarian cancer. Which means if I were to get any worse I Would be into stage 4.

I found that taking Hormone replacement therapy after my hysterectomy made my cancer grow faster. Radiation also worked fairly well for me. But there are quite a few chemos out there for her to try. don't give up on her yet.
