A 42-year-old member asked:

How likely is ovarian cancer for a 25 year old?

Radiation Oncology 44 years experience
Not very likely: The actual answer to this depends on whether there is a family history of ovarian cancer. If a close family member of the 25 year old has had ovarian cancer then the family could carry the brca gene which would increase the possibility of ovarian cancer. Symptoms of ovarian cancer are generally bloating and possibly abdominal pain. An ultrasound of the ovaries will find cancer.

A 33-year-old member asked:

What amount survival chance for 81 yrs old with possible ovarian cancer?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Devon Webster
Medical Oncology 22 years experience
Depends on stage.: A woman who is 81 years old has 9 additional years of life expectancy based on actuarial data. If her ovarian cancer is early stage and she undergoes successful surgery to have it removed, her life expectancy wouldn't change. Her other health problems, if any, will impact how well she does. The more advanced her ovarian cancer, the lower her survival. Best wishes to you and her!
