Medical Definition: Germ cell tumor of the ovary in stage II

The tumor is in one or both ovaries and has spread to other areas of the pelvis. The germ cell tumor of the ovary in Stage II is divided into stages IIA, IIB and IIC. In stage IIA, cancer has spread to the uterus or fallopian tubes (the long slender tubes through which eggs pass from the ovaries to the uterus). In stage IIB, cancer has spread to other tissue within the pelvis. In stage IIC, cancer has spread to the uterus or fallopian tubes, or other tissue within the pelvis and cancer cells are found in the fluid of the peritoneal cavity (the body cavity that contains most organs of the abdomen).
