Ovarian Cancer Travel Insurance
Around 126 women in the UK are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every week, which is approximately 6500 new cases of ovarian cancer every year, ovarian cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women in the UK. The main treatments for ovarian cancer are surgery and chemotherapy and in certain cases radiotherapy. If ovarian cancer is diagnosed at the early stages, the outcome from treatment is very good. Unfortunately, because some of the symptoms of ovarian cancer are similar to those seen in more common conditions, it can be difficult to diagnose. March is ovarian cancer month, which raises awareness of the condition and the symptoms to look out for, which are;
- Persistent pelvic and abdominal pain
- Increased abdominal size/persistent bloating – not bloating that comes and goes
- Difficulty eating and feeling full quickly
Having the above symptoms does not mean you have ovarian cancer, but you should be aware and mention them to your GP so ovarian cancer can be ruled out.
