Background: Ovarian cancer accounts for about 3% of cancers among women. The risk of developing ovarian cancer was related to age, genetics, race, diet, lifestyle, medications and other factors. Objectives: The present study was conducted to understand the ovarian cancer profile in the population of southern part of West Bengal for the last five years, from 2011-2015. Result: Result revealed that ovarian cancer rate was alarmingly high in females in this region. Further, the most serious issue that this disease in climbing in high rate days-after-days in the recent years. The cancer rate was climbing with 26.05% incidence in the year 2015. Though a slight decrease was noticed in the year 2013, but the frequency was negligible. The cancer frequency was moderate during 2011 to 2013, but it rises drastically from 2014 (22.22%) and reached maximum peak (26.05%) in 2015. The level of CA125 in the blood was high (≤ 35 U/ml) in female having ovarian cancer. Present investigation revealed that the incidence was alarmingly high in the age group of 40-49 years in females. Discussion: This rise of ovarian cancer incidence is much more faster in last few years than the previous years. This scenario is really dangerous as because due to various efforts to prevent the disease we are not able to control it in mass scale.
