Ovarian Cancer In America: What's That?

Last updated: January 2023

Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecologic cancer in the United States, and anyone with ovaries can develop ovarian cancer.1

Regardless, it can be hard to know what to expect after an ovarian cancer diagnosis. To learn more about the challenges of ovarian cancer and to give a voice to those survivors, we are conducting our Ovarian Cancer In America survey.

To learn more about the challenges of living with ovarian cancer, we are conducting our In America survey. By taking our survey, you can bring awareness to the realities of life with ovarian cancer and help others feel less alone.

What is the survey about?

The survey covers "basics" like your diagnosis and treatment experiences but also dives into the nuances of ovarian cancer, like the emotional impact and day-to-day challenges. In addition, you'll have the opportunity to not only tell us about ovarian cancer but also about any other conditions you are living with and how each impacts your life.

Why should you take the survey?

Each person who takes the In America survey contributes to a better understanding of ovarian cancer as well as other health conditions. With better knowledge, we can help others who are navigating health challenges feel less alone. We hope to capture a full picture of all aspects of your health experiences and bring greater awareness to conditions that may be misunderstood. Sharing your experiences through the survey can reveal how similar each person's journey is, as well as the differences that make each journey unique.

What will the survey ask me?

The survey will ask about different moments of your journey with ovarian cancer, including:

We do not require your name, address, or other personal information for you to participate. You also do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You may continue where you left off.

How do we use the In America survey data?

Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the ovarian cancer community. All survey responses remain confidential, and reported only in total. This means your specific responses will not be reported individually. All information will become the property of Health Union, LLC.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, AdvancedOvarianCancer.net will share the responses back to the community and highlight important findings from the survey. You can read the latest In America survey findings in our latest IA infographic.

But that is not all. Throughout the year, we publish articles and videos based on what we learned from the survey. We hope this survey-driven content contributes to the information available to those affected by ovarian cancer and helps you all connect with others who walk the same path.

Sharing your story can make a difference, and we believe each story can change how others understand life with ovarian cancer.
