Ovarian Cancer Affects 20,000 Women a Year. Here's What You Need to Know,

September marks Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, a time to support current patients and educate the general public on ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer is estimated to affect just under 20,000 women this year alone. According to the American Public Health Association, American Indian/ Alaska Native (AI/AN) and White women had similar ovarian and uterine cancer death rates.
