World Ovarian Cancer Day

8 May

Ovarian Cancer

This year approximately 17 000 women will be diagnosed with low-grade serous ovarian cancer.

The median survival is just over 8 years. That’s over 100 000 women around the world living with low-grade serous ovarian cancer today. Almost half are diagnosed in their 20s and 30s.

May 8 World Ovarian Cancer Day is an initiative of the World Ovarian Cancer Coalition.
