Ovarian National Survey Meeting the Needs of Ovarian Cancer Patients

Anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer or who has known someone who has been diagnosed is aware of the mental, physical and emotional toll the disease will take through diagnosis and treatment. Ovarian cancer is no exception. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2017 around 22,440 women will be newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 14,080 will die from ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death among women. And is the deadliest of gynecologic cancers. A woman’s lifetime risk for developing invasive ovarian cancer is 1 in 75 and a woman’s lifetime risk of dying from invasive ovarian cancer is 1 in 100.
