I have just been diagnosed with ovarian cancer

After your ovarian cancer diagnosis you may receive information from every direction and you may have lots of questions: what does all this mean? What will happen to me? How will I cope? How can I tell my family and friends? 

These pages will help you answer some of these questions by taking you through the practicalities, treatment options and exploring how you might feel. This content is primarily taken from our guide, What happens next?

You may also find our pages about genetics and hereditary ovarian cancer and for younger women diagnosed with ovarian cancer useful.
