I have Incurable ovarian cancer

My oncologist has told me my ovarian cancer is incurable. Why is this ? It is stage 3c serous papillary with bowel metatasis, one lymph node, serous papillary. I had surgery to remove the tumours which was very successful, just leaving a 2cm tumour on the bowel. I am in remission now after responding well to chemo.

Hi, I am not a doctor..but I think by incurable they mean that they can't take it  all away & cure you. 

However they can treat you to prolong your life. My cousin has had terminal ovarian cancer for many years, but has had treatments & operations along the way, the hope is it stays away from vital organs. Never give up hope, my aunt was given 2mths to live with her cancer 25yrs ago, she is still strong after many opps. I wish you all the best of luck.

cancers have best chances for cure depending on the nature of cancer and stage when it is detected
