In the diagram, the Fallopian tubes are not labeled but are well shown running between the uterus and ovaries.. The Fallopian tubes have small hair-like projections called cilia on the cells of the lining. The two tubes extend from the uterus (womb), one on each side, and each opens near an ovary. These tubes carry the ova (eggs) from the ovaries to the uterus. Symptoms of fallopian tube cancer In its early stages, fallopian tube cancer often has no symptoms (asymptomatic), but is sometimes discovered during gynaecological tests for other conditions.

1. Hyperaemia, Hemorrhage. Hyperemia of the Fallopian tube is almost always a symptom of general congestion of the sexual organs, and especially of the uterus. In rare cases, however, the hyperaemia of the tube predominates, and may lead to hemorrhage of the tube, in which case a larger or smaller quantity of blood is effused into the cavity of the peritoneum.   Fallopian tube cancer develops in the tubes that connect a woman's ovaries and uterus..
