Pathology
In brief: More dangerous
There are several dozen distinct types of ovarian cancer, and even within the types, there are subgroups that are more or less like to spread rapidly, invade surrounding structures more quickly, and/or spread to remote sites.
The types will guide treatment, and some of the more aggressive tumors also respond especially well. Good luck -- i'll be thinking of you.
