Target Ovarian Cancer.org.uk have launched a Free Ovarian Cancer Symptom Diary App.
Women who are concerned about ovarian cancer are now able to record their symptoms on a Symptoms Diary App which is intended to help reach an earlier diagnosis.
Dr Sharon Tate, Head of Primary Care Development for Target Ovarian Cancer, said “We hear too many stories of women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer too late after showing symptoms and visiting their GP numerous times. The Symptoms Diary is an easy way for women to accurately record their symptoms and help them communicate what is happening with their body with their doctors.”
According to Target Ovarian Cancer.org.uk only three percent of women are very confident at spotting a symptom of ovarian cancer.
Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer Include:
- Feeling bloated
- Needing to wee more
- Tummy pain
- Always feeling full
Three quarters of women are diagnosed once the cancer has already spread. If diagnosed at the earliest stage up to 90% of women would survive five years or more. For more information visit the Target Ovarian Cancer Website.
