Laura's story

"More women need to know because early diagnosis is the best chance of survival. It can be easy to dismiss the symptoms and put them down to something else but it is not worth the risk."

One-year survival for ovarian cancer in the UK - the number of women living at least a year following their diagnosis - currently trails that of other countries.1

For this to change we need to see more women diagnosed sooner. This means we need more women to be aware of the symptoms to look out for and more GPs trained in ovarian cancer, so that women are diagnosed more quickly.

Target Ovarian Cancer is working to raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer, campaigning for government-funded national campaigns and working to reach even more GPs with our accredited GP modules.
