How long can you live with ovarian cancer without knowing?
The good news is that if ovarian cancer is diagnosed and treated early, 94 percent of women will live five years or more. Another recent study in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology also found that up to a third of women will survive at least 10 years.
What is the average age of ovarian cancer diagnosis?
Most women who develop ovarian cancer are diagnosed after menopause, at age 55 or older, though patients in their 40s and 50s have also been diagnosed with the disease. If you have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer, you may also be at an increased risk.
