Chances Of Recovery In Patients With Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer?
I want to ask if there is still hope for recovery if it reaches stage 4
Thanks for the question. Cancer is the growth of abnormal cells that can occur in any part of the body. The growth of these cells occurs uncontrollably so that the cancer can expand and can spread to other parts of the body. Until now there is no treatment that can treat cancer. In general, the higher the stage of the cancer, the more severe the condition. If you have reached stage 4, it means that the cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body/organs. Treatment for end-stage cancer patients is usually only symptomatic and improves the patient's quality of life. Please discuss with the doctor who treats the patient about any treatment that can help the patient to have a better quality of life. Support from family and closest friends is needed.
Hope this information is useful.
