The primary treatment of ovarian cancer is surgery. Whether surgery can be done or not, depends on many factors. If the tumor is inoperable due large size, it can be downsize by using chemotherapy. But after chemotherapy, surgery should be done. Survival of the patients treated without surgery is poor.
