Ovarian Cancer Risk Assessment

According to 2013 statistics from the American Cancer Society, ovarian cancer accounts for 3% of all cancers in U.S. women. Ovarian cancer is most common in older women. It is a little more common in white women than in women of other ethnic groups. The risk of getting ovarian cancer during a woman's lifetime is about 1 in 72.
