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

In Australia, three women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every day. It could be you, your friend, your partner, your sister, your mum, your gran or your daughter.

There is no early detection test for ovarian cancer and the Pap test does not detect the disease.

 

SYMPTOMS OF OVARIAN CANCER

Women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer report four types of symptoms most frequently:

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


If you have any of these symptoms, they are new for you and you have experienced them multiple times during a 4-week period, download our Symptom diary now.

Ovarian Cancer Australia's Symptom Diary helps you to monitor your symptoms. You can then take the completed diary to your doctor to assist with diagnosis.

 

Ovarian Cancer In Australia

More than 1200 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer in Australia each year and 800 women will die from the disease.

Approximately 75% of women are diagnosed at an advanced stage, where the cancer has spread and is difficult to treat successfully.

At the moment, only 40% of women with ovarian cancer will be alive five years later. But if ovarian cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, women have an 80% chance of being alive and well after five years.

More women need to be diagnosed at an early stage when ovarian cancer is very treatable. And that is why everyone needs to know more about ovarian cancer and its symptoms.

Ovarian Cancer Australia is Australia's leading organisation for ovarian cancer awareness, support and research. We are committed to ensuring that every Australian knows the symptoms of ovarian cancer. Do you?
