Fairly well: We have modestly good treatment for ovarian cancer. If caught early it is curable in half to two thirds of cases. But commonly it presents as stage 3-4 disease where the cure rate drops to 25-30%. Yet the available chemotherapy can buy several years of good life when patient is treated by a specialist(gynecologic oncologist). Good luck.
