Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Two thirds of those with ovarian cancer are diagnosed too late when the cancer has already spread. This March Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

  • Only 1 in 5 women know that bloating is a symptom of ovarian cancer 
  • Only 1 in 100 women know that needing to wee more often is a symptom 
  • 4 in 10 women wrongly believe that cervical screening detects ovarian cancer 

Diagnosed early, ovarian cancer is easier to treat, yet too many people don’t know the symptoms. 

March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
