Ovarian Cancer Survival Rate Based on Stage

The stage of ovarian cancer plays a role in a woman's ovarian cancer prognosis. Based on historical data:
 
  • 19 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed while the cancer is still confined to the primary site (localized stage)
  • 7 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed after the cancer has spread to regional lymph nodes or directly beyond the primary site
  • 68 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed after the cancer has already metastasized (distant stage)
  • 7 percent of ovarian cancer cases had staging information that was unknown.
     
The corresponding 5-year relative ovarian cancer survival rates were:
 
  • 93.1 percent for localized
  • 69.0 percent for regional
  • 29.6 percent for distant
  • 23.3 percent for unstaged.
