The Lya Segall Ovarian Cancer Institute at Mercy has some of the Mid-Atlantic region's top doctors for determining the stages of ovarian cancer. Determining the stage of ovarian cancer is essential in developing an ovarian cancer treatment plan. The stages of ovarian cancer are:

  • Stage I - ovarian cancer is in one or both of the ovaries
  • Stage II - ovarian cancer extends to the pelvis area
  • Stage III - ovarian cancer extends to the abdominal area
