A recent study has found that women in the UK have low survival rates when it comes to ovarian cancer. It is believed that the ovarian cancer in the UK is diagnosed quite late, in the advanced stage that makes it difficult for the patients to survive.
The study was conducted by the Cancer Research UK Cancer Survival Group on behalf of International Cancer Benchmarking Partnership (ICBP). The findings of the study have been published in the journal Gynecologic Oncology.
According to researchers of the study, overweight and other medical conditions play vital role in recovery of cancer patients. As the women in the UK are obese and have many health complications as well therefore their survival rate is low.
For the study, data of 20,073 women affected with ovarian cancer was analyzed by the researchers. During the study, it was found that only 69% of the patients survived for one year after being diagnosed. Lead author of the study, Dr. Bernard Rachet said, "Our research is the first population-based study to examine whether low ovarian cancer survival in the UK is due to more women being diagnosed with advanced disease, or to the outcome of treatment in the UK being inferior at each stage".
