Ovarian Cancer FAQs

Ovarian cancer affects nearly one out of every 75 women. It usually does not develop until later in life, and most women who develop it have already reached menopause. However, women of all ages should know what the condition is, what the most common symptoms are and when to see a doctor.

Additionally, women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer are encouraged to learn more about their treatment and supportive care options. It’s normal to feel confused by the abundance of information, but it can be beneficial – both physically and emotionally – to be actively engaged in the treatment process.
