Because Sertoli-Leydig cell tumors of the ovary are rare, there are no established guidelines for treatment. Treatment decisions are based on the unique characteristics of each tumor, particularly the stage. Surgery to remove the tumor is considered the best treatment for an early-stage tumor, whereas surgery and chemotherapy may be needed to treat a later-stage tumor.
