Ovarian Cancer Awareness - Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why should I care?

    Every 7 minutes in the United States a woman is diagnosed with a cancer of the reproductive organs. Many will win their fight against cancer, but sadly many will succumb to the disease. Those who win, in the vast majority of cases, are women who knew their bodies well enough to realize there might be something wrong. Four out of five women who beat cancer are successful because they seek care early in their disease. The Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Program is a resource for care, but equally important, an advocate for research, education and prevention. The best way to treat cancer is to stop it in the earliest stages. No matter the diagnosis, WCP is equipped to provide the best services at every stage of women's cancers.

  2. Why ovarian cancer?

    Ovarian cancer, often called the "disease that whispers" is lower in "incidence" but far higher in death rate. Most women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer only live up to five years after their diagnosis. There is no clinical screening for ovarian cancer, and the most successful tool to fight ovarian cancer is education of personal health. There are enormous opportunities to improve health and save lives by increasing research, education, and prevention related to ovarian cancer.

  3. What can I do?

    Everyone can make a difference in the fight to end cancer as a threat to women, some through care, others through advocacy and education, and others through philanthropy. Every single instance of involvement moves us one step closer to the realization of a world without cancer.
