Ovarian Cancer Infographic

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

The month of March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month and East Riding of Yorkshire Council is supporting this campaign to offer advice and support on how to recognise signs and symptoms, and where to get help.

When a woman is diagnosed at the earliest stage, her chance of surviving ovarian cancer for five years or more doubles from just 46% to more than 90%.

The symptoms can present as:

- Persistent pelvic or abdominal pain (that’s your tummy and below)

- Increased abdominal size/persistent bloating – not bloating that comes and goes

- Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly

- Needing to wee more urgently or more often than usual

Laurie Fergusson, public health lead for healthy lifestyles at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Occasionally there can be other symptoms such as changes in bowel habits, extreme fatigue (feeling very tired), unexplained weight loss or loss of appetite. 

“If you are worried about your health, or think you may have any of the symptoms explained above, you should always consult your GP - especially if your symptoms are frequent, persistent or new.”
