Tell Every Amazing Lady® partnered with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to survey New York state residents and find out how much they know about ovarian cancer, screening methods, risk factors, its signs and symptoms, and general awareness. The study found that many people do not understand where ovarian cancer — the most lethal gynecological cancer in America — comes from or how it is diagnosed and treated.
Eight hundred male and female ethnically and socio-economically diverse participants residing in 51 of the 62 New York state counties completed the survey.
The findings were released in September, which is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
