In brief: It's variable.

Some ovarian cancers spread very slowly - over years, even.
The most common form of ovarian cancer likely spreads more quickly than that (weeks to months), but every patient with ovarian cancer is different.

In brief: Ovarian cancer

The speed of ovarian cancer spread is determined by the type of ovarian cancer and if it is newly diagnosed or recurrent.
