72% of women survive ovarian cancer for at least one year, and this is predicted to fall to 46% surviving for five years or more, as shown by
Ovarian Cancer (C56 and C57.0-C57.7), Age-Standardised One-, Five- and Ten-Year Net Survival, Women (Aged 15-99), England and Wales, 2010-2011
95% LCL and 95% UCL are the 95% lower and upper
Five- and ten-year survival is predicted using an excess hazard statistical model
Ovarian cancer survival continues to fall beyond five years after diagnosis. 35% of women are predicted to survive their disease for ten years or more, as shown by age-standardised net survival for patients diagnosed with ovarian cancer during 2010-2011 in England and Wales. Out of 20 common cancers in England and Wales, ten-year survival for ovarian cancer ranks 7th lowest (both overall and for females only).
Ovarian Cancer (C56 and C57.0-C57.7), Net Survival up to Ten Years after Diagnosis, Women (Aged 15-99), England and Wales, 2010-2011
Survival for ovarian cancer is reported in Scotland and Northern Ireland,[2,3] though it is difficult to make survival comparisons between countries due to different methodologies and criteria for including patients in analyses.
