World Ovarian Cancer Day

World Ovarian Cancer Day

Today is World Ovarian Cancer Day. The goal of this campaign is to spread awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms throughout the UK.

Andrew says, "A woman dies every 2 hours from the disease in the UK. Early diagnoses are key to improving survival rates; however, 82% of UK women are not able to name the main symptoms of ovarian cancer."

The NHS website outlines the following most common symptoms of ovarian cancer:

• feeling constantly bloated

• a swollen tummy

• discomfort in your tummy or pelvic area

• feeling full quickly when eating, or loss of appetite

• needing to pee more often or more urgently than normal
