1. Ovarian Cancer Prognosis
As with any type of cancer, early intervention increases your long-term survival rate. According to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance, around 46% of women with ovarian cancer are alive five years following their diagnosis. When the cancer is caught in the earliest stages, before it has had a chance to spread, that number increases to around 90%. Younger women typically have a better survival rate than those diagnosed after the age of 65. Visiting your gynecologist on a yearly basis and paying attention to warning signs can help you catch signs of cancer early.
