February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Release Date

February, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, provides an opportunity for us all to focus on ovarian cancer and its impact on those affected by the disease.

Ovarian cancer is the 10th most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian women (excluding basal and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin), and the second most commonly diagnosed gynaecological cancer.

It is important that women are aware of the facts about ovarian cancer, the symptoms to look out for and what to do.
