World Ovarian Cancer Day - 08 May.

Every year on May 8th, World Ovarian Cancer Day increases global awareness for this deadly disease. The day also unites those living with ovarian cancer, as well as survivors and their families.

According to health experts, only women with symptoms of ovarian cancer need to get tested for it. These symptoms include:

  • Suddenly feeling full when eating
  • Pain and discomfort in the pelvic area
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Weight loss
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Abnormal bleeding, especially during or after menopause

Women with these types of symptoms, or who have family history of ovarian cancer, should see their doctor. The earlier ovarian cancer is detected, the easier it is to treat. If it’s not caught early, the cancer could spread to the pelvis and abdomen.
