According to a study conducted by the World Health Organisation, one in every 12 women in urban India will, potentially, suffer from cancer. The five main types of cancer that can affect a woman’s organs are cervical, ovarian, uterine, vaginal and vulvar. Among these, breast cancer is a leading cause behind the maximum number of cancer-related female deaths in India, closely followed by ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is more dangerous than any other cancers because the survival rate of a woman suffering from ovarian cancer is far lower than any other cancer that affects women, as it is difficult to detect in the early stages. Today, we take a look at this slow killer and tell you how you can prevent it. *Images courtesy: © Thinkstock photos/ Getty Images
