BEAT Ovarian Cancer

An estimated 7,500 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year. Because the symptoms are common amongst other less serious illnesses, ovarian cancer is often diagnosed late. The earlier ovarian cancer can be diagnosed, the easier it is to treat.

March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month - this cancer claims the life of one woman in the UK every two hours - it causes more deaths of women in the UK than womb, cervical, vaginal and vulval cancer combined.

Recognising the signs and symptoms is key to early diagnosis:

B - bloating that is persistent

E - eating less and feeling fuller

A - abdominal pain

T - toilet troubles

It is important to speak to your GP as soon as possible if you are concerned with any signs or symptoms that you may have, early diagnosis saves lives.
