Ovarian cancer is both the fifth most diagnosed (accounting for 4% of all new cancers) and the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths (accounting for almost 5%) among Canadian women.
Among gynaecologic cancers, it is the most lethal, largely due to the fact that it is often not diagnosed until late stage when symptoms develop due to invasion of other pelvic organs or from metastases.
The cooperation of the provincial and territorial cancer registries which supply the data to Statistics Canada is gratefully acknowledged.
