Very interesting graph! What an improvement in some survival rates in just the last decade even, but I’m curious what could be the reasons for the decline in survival rate for ovarian cancer?

And wow, pancreatic cancer… brutal!

The brca genes are both for breast and ovarian cancers. Detection of ovarian cancer is still terrible. So perhaps women with a brca gene survive BC but then get ovarian cancer? (A total guess).
