Ovarian Cancer Survival Rates   

Your prognosis depends on your lifestyle, and most importantly the stage of the tumor when it was diagnosed. Your age may also play an important role in the prognosis. From 2002-2006, the median age at death for cancer of the ovary was 71 years of age; ages and percentages of people died during this period were approximately:     

  • 0.1% under age 20;  
  • 0.7% between 20 and 34; 
  • 3.0% between 35 and 44;  
  • 11.3% between 45 and 54;  
  • 19.7% between 55 and 64;  
  • 24.4% between 65 and 74;  
  • 28.1% between 75 and 84;
  • 12.7% 85+ years of age. 

It is also shown a racial difference in the ovarian cancer survival rates. The overall 5-year relative survival rate for 1999-2005 from 17 SEER (Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results) geographic areas was 45.9%. Five-year relative survival rates by race were:     

  • 45.8% for white women 
  • 37.4% for black women.
