  • There are many types of Ovarian Cancer, and cure and treatment success depends on how early Ovarian Cancer is detected.  Ninety-five percent of women will live longer than five years, if Ovarian Cancer is detected before it has spread beyond the ovaries.  Presently, only 25% of Ovarian Cancer cases in the U.S. are diagnosed in the early stages, because there is no simple screening test for Ovarian Cancer.  Also, once symptoms develop and a woman seeks medical care, the cancer is often advanced.  In advanced stages, 5-year survival rates drop to 28%.  Ovarian Cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths among women.
