About Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian Cancer is one of the deadliest gynecological cancers. The symptoms are vague and often dismissed; there is no reliable screening test for ovarian cancer. Ovarian Cancer is usually caught in the late stages when it has spread within the pelvis and abdomen, making it more difficult to treat and is often fatal at this stage. There are approximately 2800 women in Canada who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year and more than 1700 of them succumb to this disease. Because this disease is often caught in the late stages, 55% of women diagnosed die within five years.
