More people are set to beat cancer as treatments improve and diagnosis is made earlier, according to Cancer Research UK.
Statistics released yesterday predicted a 16.8% decline in the rates of people dying from cancer in the UK by 2030.
Deaths caused by ovarian cancer are expected to drop by 42.6% from 9.1 women per 100,000 in 2010 to 5.3 in 2030.
Reductions are also predicted in female breast cancer and bowel and prostate cancer fatalities; down 28%, 23% and 16% respectively.
Improved treatments and earlier diagnosis are said to be the cause of the improved survival rates.
But the charity said a drop in smoking-related cancers had also led to fewer deaths.
Dr Harpal Kumar, chief executive of Cancer Research UK, said: "These new figures are encouraging and highlight the huge progress we're making.
"Research across many areas is having real impact. But we know there's still so much more to do if we are to reach a day when no-one dies prematurely from cancer."
The research has also shown there are some cancers where death rates are expected to go up.
Oral cancer is set to increase 22%, while a 39% rise is predicted in liver cancer deaths.
