• Three out of four women survive ovarian cancer one year after diagnosis
• More than 46 percent of women survive ovarian cancer five years after diagnosis

Also, the NCI states the following regarding ovarian cancer prognosis:

• You have a 93 percent chance of surviving five years or more, if you are diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the early stage

• You have a 72.8 percent chance of surviving five years or more, if you are diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the regional stage

• You have a 28.8 percent chance of surviving five years or more, if you are diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the distant stage
According to the CDC, ovarian cancer treatment is most effective when the cancer is found in the early stage. Treatments for ovarian cancer are based on your stage of ovarian cancer. Treatment for ovarian cancer can include a hysterectomy, radiation, chemotherapy and/or clinical drug trials.
