Epithelial Ovarian Cancer Drugs Market Overview 

Epithelial ovarian cancer drugs market size was valued at USD million in 2022 and is estimated to reach USD million by 2030, growing at a High CAGR during the forecast period 2023-2030.

Ovarian cancer is the type of cancer that affects the ovaries in the female reproductive system. Epithelial ovarian cancer is the most prevalent type of ovarian cancer. About 90 out of 100 tumors of the ovary (90%) are epithelial. Epithelial ovarian cancer means cancer started in the surface layer covering the ovary.

In women having two or more blood relatives with ovarian cancer, the risk of developing the disease is higher. The genetic information is carried from one generation to another generation through carrier genes received from parents and, the risk of developing ovarian cancer is very high in a woman who has inherited mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. It has been estimated that hereditary ovarian cancer is nearly 5% - 10% more prevalent when compared to other cases of ovarian cancer. Some symptoms of epithelial ovarian cancer include pain in the pelvis area, swelling in the abdomen, and gastrointestinal problems such as bloating. Epithelial ovarian cancer is diagnosed through a series of procedures such as pelvic examination, ultrasound, CA 125 assay, barium enema, intravenous pyelogram (IVP), CT scan, and biopsy. The treatment for epithelial ovarian cancer includes chemotherapy drugs, targeted therapy drugs, surgery, radiation therapy.
