3 What is it? Ovarian cancer is when abnormal cells in the ovary begin to multiply out of control and form a tumor. If left untreated, the tumor could possibly spread to other parts of the body. The ovaries are the two female gonads that produce ova and female hormones like estrogen and progesterone. According to an article published on August 10, 2019 by HemOnctoday, there will be 22,530 new cases of ovarian cancer in the United States alone this year. From that total amount, approximately 14,000 in the United States will die from this condition. What are some of the causes of ovarian cancer?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
