← Return to Webinar: What Women Need to Know about Ovarian Cancer
3C recurrent at 44 yrs old. Was in remission for a little over a year. Genetic testing was all negative. Are there any new studies showing cure in these types of scenarios? I’m being told at this point there won’t be cure.

Thank you for sharing your experience with ovarian cancer. This question comes up daily. Durable remissions have been observed in women with recurrent ovarian cancer. This doesn’t mean the cancer is gone forever (cured) but it means we can’t see the cancer with any of our tests, which is the next best thing. If long-term remission is not achieved, the cancer can still be treated. Clinical trials increase the treatment options.
