There are mainly 4 stages of ovarian cancer. Stage 1 is the starting phase and Stage 4 is the most critical stage where the cancerous condition spreads to the other parts of the body.

The stages of ovarian cancer range from 1 to 4 in which 1 stands for the minimum one and the 4 stands for the most critical stage.

Stage 1 - In this stage, cancer cells are detected in one or both of the ovaries. Here, the cancer does not spread to the other parts of the body.

Stage 2 - In this stage, cancer cells are found in one or both of the ovaries. Cancer cells spread to fluid present in the abdomen as well.

Stage 3 - Here, the cancer cells spread from the ovaries to the pelvis as well. It can also be found outside liver.

Stage 4 - In this critical stage, the cancer spreads to the other organs of the body which includes lungs, spleen as well as liver.
