United States Cancer Statistics




Ovarian Cancer Statistics

Each year, about 20,000 women in the United States get ovarian cancer. 
Among women in the United States, ovarian cancer is the ninth most
 common cancer and the fifth leading cause of cancer death, after lung
and bronchus, breast, colorectal, and pancreatic cancers. 
Ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female
 reproductive system, but it accounts for only about 3% of all cancers
 in women.† When ovarian cancer is found in its early stages, treatment
 works best.
In 2013 (the most recent year numbers are available)—
  • 20,927 women in the United States were diagnosed with ovarian cancer.*†
  • 14,276 women in the United States died from ovarian cancer.*†
*Incidence counts cover about 99% of the U.S. population; death counts
cover about 100% of the U.S. population. Use caution when comparing
 incidence and death counts.
