Cheryl was thankful for an early stage Ovarian Cancer diagnosis.
January 9, 2016
In their in-depth report on diagnosing Ovarian Cancer, The New York Post reported: "Up to 95% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will survive longer than 5 years if their cancers are treated before they have spread beyond the ovaries. Unfortunately, there are no screening tests for ovarian cancer that are the equivalent to mammography for early detection of breast cancer. Therefore, only about 25% of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at such early stages" (2016)
In Share for Women fighting Breast and Ovarian Cancer, Cheryl shares her story on how an unrelated CT Scan is what made the difference in her Stage 1 Ovarian Cancer diagnosis and survival. Other tests, including a CA 125 came back informing the doctors it was not cancer. The doctors followed her progress, and as the tumor continued to grow and cause pain, they knew surgery was needed. The day after the surgery, Cheryl's doctor shared that the tumor was malignant and she had Ovarian Cancer.
Thankfully Cheryl fall is in the 95% catagory, surviving more than 5 years, because she was in the 25% catagory with getting an early stages diasnosis.
