It’s World Cancer Day.
Women, and those who care about them, must remember cancer doesn’t just come in pink.
Ovarian cancer isn’t detected by smears.
Symptoms can include:
abdominal bloating/swelling, abdominal/back/pelvic pain, change in bowel function, urinary frequency or urgency, eating less and feeling fuller, indigestion, unintentional weight loss, painful intercourse, fatigue and abnormal vaginal bleeding. If these symptoms are new, unusual or worsening and last for more than two weeks it is important to see a doctor, and keep seeing a doctor until you get a diagnosis.
