The cancer sometimes begins at the end of the fallopian tube near the ovary and spreads to the ovary. Fallopian tube cancer is similar to ovarian epithelial cancer and is staged and treated the same way.

Treatments*

Surgery & chemotherapy are the primary treatment types. Targeted & hormone therapy can also be used.

Side Effects*

Surgery will prohibit the capability of becoming pregnant and the onset of menopause. Chemotherapy can cause nausea, hair loss, neuropathy, anemia, & brain fog.
