Overview

Ovarian cancer etiology is not completely understood but there are multiple risk factors that can play a role in its occurrence. The theories of the etiology of ovarian cancer suggest that repeated ovulation injures the ovarian epithelium and eventually leads to ovarian cancer development. The other theories discuss the origin of ovarian cancer that can be cortical inclusion cysts that become neoplastic or metaplastic or dysplastic changes of the fallopian tube. Direct effect of persistent Gonadotrophin release from the pituitary gland on the ovary also believed to play a role in ovarian cancer etiology.
