Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Early detection saves lives, book your cancer screenings today!

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month helps us to shine a light on this often-silent killer and empower individuals with knowledge about its symptoms, early detection methods, and available treatments. Ovarian cancer is one of the most deadly gynaecological cancers, but with awareness and proactive healthcare, we can make strides in saving lives.

Ovarian cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the ovary begin to grow out of control, forming tumors. It can affect women of all ages, but it is most commonly diagnosed in women over the age of 50. While the exact cause of ovarian cancer is unknown, certain factors such as family history, age, and genetic mutations may increase the risk.


One of the challenges in detecting ovarian cancer is that it often presents with vague or nonspecific symptoms, which may be overlooked or attributed to other conditions. Common symptoms include:

  • Abnormal bloating 
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
  • Changes in bowel habits
  • Urgency in urination

It’s crucial to listen to your body and seek medical attention if you experience persistent or concerning symptoms.

Early detection and testing:

Early detection is key to improving outcomes for Ovarian Cancer patients. While there is currently no routine screening test for Ovarian Cancer for the general population, certain tests and procedures may be recommended for women at higher risk. Those at higher risk can be patients with a family history of Ovarian or Breast Cancer. The tests would include a Transvaginal Ultrasound, CA-125 blood tests, genetic counselling and testing.
