Grave prognosis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
I can understand your concerns.

Sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed ovarian cancer.

Stage 3 ovarian tumor with malignant ascites has grave prognosis. The life expectancy, although less, can be improved with surgical cytoreduction or intraperitoneal chemotherapy (as indicated).

Try to keep your spirits high. Stay hopeful.
Positive energy helps you to fight with the disease better.

I would be happy if I could help you in any way.

Best regards.
Dr. Nidhi.
