Based on histopathology, epithelial-type ovarian cancer was divided into type 1 and type 2, with the High grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) been the dominant subtype and accounted for the highest mortality rate of all types of ovarian epithelial cancer. Due to the high mortality rate and the absence of screened guidelines for ovarian epithelial cancer, knowledge of the risk factors for ovarian cancer was needed as a first step for early detection of ovarian cancer. Age and menopausal status were examples of risk factors that can cause ovarian epithelial cancer. This study aimed to determine the relationship between age and menopausal status with the incidence of epithelial ovarian cancer, subtype of high-grade serous carcinoma, at Dr M.
