September is Ovarian Cancer awareness month. The American Cancer Society predicts 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the United States and that 15,000 women will die from this disease. In Kentucky, new cases of ovarian cancer each year are around 320. It is the 5th most common cancer among women, and it is the most deadly of all gynecologic cancers. The five-year survival rate for all women is approximately 46%. However, survival rates improve greatly to 93% if it is diagnosed at an early stage before it spreads. Many women have not symptoms until the cancer is advanced.
