Ovarian cancer in Alexandria from 1988 to 1997: trends and survival
AbstractThe trend of incidence of ovarian cancer was studied, the 5-year survival rate calculated and prognostic factors for survival determined. Data were collected from the Alexandria Cancer Registry and medical records in various hospitals. A total of 358 cases of ovarian cancer were diagnosed from 1988 to 1997. A significant increasing trend in incidence of ovarian cancer from 1.23/100 000 in 1988 to 3.16/100 000 in 1997 was found. The overall 5-year survival rate was 46%. The 5-year survival rates for tumour stages I to IV were 85%, 71%, 41% and 22% respectively, which was statistically significant. Survival rates with poorly differentiated tumours were significantly worse than with moderate or well differentiated tumours
