Ovarian Cancer

February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

What is ovarian cancer?

Ovarian cancer is a disease where some of the cells in one or both ovaries start to grow abnormally and develop into cancer.

Every woman needs to know the symptoms of ovarian cancer. Make sure you do.

The four most common symptoms of ovarian cancer include:

  • Abdominal or pelvic pain
  • Increased abdominal size or persistent abdominal bloating
  • Needing to urinate often or urgently
  • Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly

Each year in Australia Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month is held in February to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and to recognise women, their families and friends affected by ovarian cancer. Throughout the month Ovarian Cancer Australia will be hosting a range of activities and events to raise awareness and funds for our support, awareness and research programs and we would love you to get involved!
