The 5-year survival rate is greater than 75% if diagnosis of the cancer occurs before it has spread to other organs. However, the 5-year survival rate drops to 20% when the tumor has spread to the upper abdomen.

 Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with ovarian cancer? If so I'm sorry because having any kind of cancer sucks.
