Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the 3-year overall survival among the epithelial ovarian cancer patients based on the histology, age, and the stage of the disease in Iran during 2011-2017.

Materials and Methods: This study was a cross-sectional retrospective study that was conducted on 179 newly diagnosed patients with epithelial ovarian cancer, who had referred to the gynecologic cancers clinic in a referral training hospital in Tehran during 2011-2017. The patients? data including the demographic characteristics of the patients, the stage of the disease, and the treatment type were analyzed based on the pathologic responses.

Results: Among 220 newly diagnosed patients with epithelial ovarian cancer, 179 of them were suitable for the follow-up. There were 93 death and 85 living cases among these patients and the mean age of the patients was 50.5 ± 11.3. In addition, most of the patients were in stage 3 (60.9%) and 6.7% of them were in stage 4. The most common pathology was serous adenocarcinoma (70.9%). In this study, the overall survival rate had no connection with the type of tumor histology but it was related to the stage of the disease (P = 0.05). Finally, there was no mortality in stage one and among the mucinous adenocarcinoma cases.

Conclusions: The survival in the epithelial ovarian cancer was related to the stage of the disease and among all the pathologies, mucinous adenocarcinoma and clear cell carcinoma had the best survival rate.
