Early detection of Ovarian Cancer means Longer Survival
If ovarian cancer is diagnosed at the earliest stage, when it is still confined to one ovary, then up to 9 out of 10 women will still be alive 5 years later. However, only one-third of women with ovarian cancers are diagnosed in the early stages.1
Unfortunately, many ovarian cancers are diagnosed at the late stage. This means that many women will not be treated until it is too late, and their treatment options may be more limited.
