Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynaecological cancer in the UK with almost 7000 women diagnosed every year. This is most common in post-menopausal women but can affect women at any age. The symptoms of ovarian cancer can be difficult to recognise and a cervical screening test will be unable to detect the disease.

The following articles, written by Consultant Gynaecologists provide an overview of the symptoms to look out for, as well as the causes/risk factors and treatment options for cancer of the ovaries.
