Every woman with ovarian cancer is treated as an individual case, depending on the stage of the disease and other personal factors. It is therefore very difficult to give a general prognosis.If the cancer is diagnosed and treated early, between 80-100% of patients will survive for more than five years. But only approximately 30% of women diagnosed at advanced stages will survive for more than five years. See 'How is Ovarian Cancer Treated?' for further information about survival rates.
