Fact sheets

Information for GPs to give to women who are being referred for diagnostic tests for ovarian cancer. NICE recommends that women experiencing symptoms of ovarian cancer are given a CA125 blood test and recommends pelvic and abdominal ultrasound scans for symptomatic women who have a CA125 test result greater than 35 IU/ml.​

Order free flag pens for your surgery as a helpful reminder of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer and the diagnostic pathway (as defined by NICE CG122 or SIGN and Scottish referral guidelines for suspected cancer).

GP nurse leaflet

Our GP nurse leaflet helps nurses update their knowledge of ovarian cancer symptoms and risk factors, and gives simple suggestions for discussing ovarian cancer with patients. It is vital that GP nurses are knowledgeable of ovarian cancer and know how to manage and advise women who may have concerns.

Ovarian cancer guides

GPs can order our publications to give to women with ovarian cancer. Our guides provide reliable information on diagnosis, treatment and living with the condition. Download PDFs or order printed copies for free.​

Be Clear on Cancer

A local ovarian cancer symptoms awareness pilot campaign as part of Be Clear on Cancer took place across six regions in England in 2013. This was followed by a regional pilot campaign in the North West of England in early 2014. Target Ovarian Cancer worked closely with Public Health England, the Department of Health, NHS England, and Cancer Research UK in ensuring these were successful. Please join our campaign for a national symptoms awareness campaign to take place as soon as possible. You can also download Be Clear on Cancer resources for GPs.
