Is there a cure for fallopian tube cancer?

The treatment of fallopian tube cancer is much more likely to be successful if it is diagnosed and treated at an early stage. Nearly 100 percent of people diagnosed while in stage I survive for at least another five years. This number drops to 75 percent for those with stage II disease, 69 percent for those with stage III, and 45 percent for those with stage IV. Thus, this cancer is not curable in 100 percent of cases, but it is highly treatable and it helps significantly to catch it early. Treatment usually involves chemotherapy and surgery but may include radiation.
