TerryWhite Chemmart is proud to work in partnership with Ovarian Cancer Australia to raise awareness of the impact of ovarian cancer.
Four Australian women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every day. Ovarian cancer has the lowest survival rate of any women’s cancer and there is no early detection test – this is why it’s so important to know ovarian cancer and take action.
Join TerryWhite Chemmart to support Ovarian Cancer Australia – visit your local pharmacy to purchase a teal ribbon or make a donation, and get your family and friends together to host a fundraising Afternoon Teal on a day of your choice in February!
Together, we can make a difference.
Signs and Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer
Many symptoms that can be related to ovarian cancer can also be related to much more common, less serious health issues, and are symptoms that a lot of women generally will go through from time to time.
However, Ovarian Cancer Australia advises there are four more frequently reported symptoms from women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer:
- Abdominal/pelvic pain
- Increase in abdominal size/persistent abdominal bloating
- Increased urination frequency or urgency
- Feeling full after eating only a small amount
If you experience any of these symptoms either for the first time or persistently over a four week period, please visit your GP.
