Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month is held annually in February to raise awareness of Ovarian cancer and to acknowledge and support women diagnosed with ovarian cancer and their loved ones who are also affected.
It's important to know your own body and be aware of the symptoms of the disease, as there is no screening test for ovarian cancer. A Cervical Screening Test does not detect ovarian cancer - it is designed to screen for cervical cancer.
Signs & symptoms
The symptoms of ovarian cancer can be vague and similar to other common conditions. If you experience any of the symptoms, especially if they are unusual for you or persistent, it's important to see your doctor to be sure. If you are concerned about your family history of breast or ovarian cancer, your doctor can assess your risk.
