Know your family history. Up to 15% of all ovarian cancer is hereditary and there are things you can do to reduce risk for yourself and your family.*
The American Cancer Society estimates that 22,280 new cases of ovarian cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2012; 15,500 women will die of the disease.
Most women newly diagnosed with ovarian cancer already have advanced disease.*
