1st – 31st March - OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS MONTH Posted on 12 Mar 2021

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Target Ovarian Cancer is the UK's leading ovarian cancer charity. Find out how we're working to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research and provide much-needed support to everyone affected by ovarian cancer. We're the only ovarian cancer charity working across all four nations of the UK. We work with women, family members and health professionals to ensure we target the areas that matter most for those living with ovarian cancer.

We believe fundamentally that every woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer should receive the right support at the right time, in the way that is right for her. Last year demand for our nurse-led support line went up 22 per cent during the year, demonstrating the ever-increasing need for our specialist nurses’ insight and experience.

Ovarian cancer is a disease that can disrupt the normal function of the ovaries. If it’s left unchecked, it can affect other parts of the body too. Each year 7,400 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the UK. Here you can find out what ovarian cancer is, including the different typesstages and grades.
