Do you have ovarian cancer, or do you know someone who does? The American Cancer Society estimates that a woman’s risk of developing ovarian cancer is 1 in 73. So if you don’t know someone with ovarian cancer yet, odds are high that one day you will.
Ovarian cancer is cancer that starts in a woman’s ovaries. Women have two ovaries located in the abdomen on each side of the uterus. The ovaries produce eggs and the sex hormones estrogen and progesterone.
