Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

February 2021

2021 marks the 20th year of Ovarian Cancer Australia educating Australians and raising awareness for Ovarian Cancer.  Each year 1510 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 1046 women die from the disease, the deadliest female cancer in Australia.

There is no effective screening program, so the best way of detecting the disease is for women to be aware of the signs, symptoms and risk factors.

The symptoms of ovarian cancer can be vague and similar to other medical conditions.  It’s important to see your GP if you experience any of these symptoms, especially if they are unusual for you or persistent.

No one knows your body like you do, always listen to what your body is saying and trust your instincts.
