In brief: Facts

Ovarian cancer is not a common one in the US.
The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2013 there were 22,240 new cases of ovarian cancer in the US. The median age of women with ovarian cancer is 60. This doesn't mean that it cannot occur in a younger woman, but those are the facts. I hope this helps.
