Cancer of the ovary affects more than 6,500 women in the UK each year and is the fifth most common cancer among women.

Ovarian Cancer Action’s aim for this month is to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer – allowing women to be in-the-know about symptoms, treatment options and risk factors, so that they are empowered to take action.
