Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month – March 2024

  • Posted

As we are at the beginning of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, let’s put the spotlight on this disease and raise awareness of its signs and symptoms.

Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries and occurs when abnormal cells grow and divide in an uncontrolled way.

If not caught early enough, cancer can gradually grow and spread into surrounding tissues; this is why it is crucial to spot the signs as early as possible and seek advice from your GP.

Symptoms to look out for can include the following:

  • persistent bloating
  • pelvic or abdominal pain
  • difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
  • changes in urinary habits
  • fatigue
  • unexplained weight loss or gain.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact your GP and get checked out. The earlier this is caught, the better the outcome.

According to Cancer Research UK: “Around 7,500 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the UK each year. This makes ovarian cancer the 6th most common cancer in women”.

It is worth mentioning that not all symptoms are indicative of cancer, and that is why it is so important to get examined by your GP if you are concerned at all.
