Report Description


Ovarian cancer is a term attributed to the uncommon type of cancer that arises in the ovary of a woman from different types of cells. Ovarian cancer is caused due to the mutagenic changes in DNA. Inherited mutations in genes are also responsible for ovarian cancer. The risk of developing ovarian cancer is high if a woman has inherited mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. The most common type of ovarian cancer is epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), which arises from the epithelium of the ovary. Ovarian cancer is regarded as one of the most common types of cancer among women. It accounts for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system, while it ranks 5th in overall women deaths due to cancer. This type of cancer is rarely diagnosed at an early stage, making treatment at an advanced stage difficult.

According to American Cancer Society estimates, risk of any woman acquiring ovarian cancer in her lifetime is 1 in 75, while her chance of death due to ovarian cancer is 1 in 100. Ovarian cancer is more prevalent among elderly women, making women over 55 a high-risk population. Women in this age group have the lowest survival rate as well. Surgical procedures are employed for the treatment of both early and advanced stages of ovarian cancer. According to American Cancer Society estimates, about 22,440 women are expected to be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the U.S., while about 14,080 women deaths would be attributed to ovarian cancer in 2017.
