Ovarian Cancer, or cancer of the ovaries, is one of the most common types of cancer in women.

The symptoms of Ovarian Cancer are not always easy to recognise as they are similar to some more common conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). It is important to know what to look for as early diagnosis can save lives.

  • Frequent Weeing – Needing to pee more often or more urgently than usual
  • Difficulty eating – Feeling full quickly when eating, or loss of appetite 
  • Bloating – Feeling constantly bloated
  • Persistant Stomach Pain – discomfort in your stomach or pelvic area
