Early diagnosis of ovarian cancer saves lives. The earlier a woman is diagnosed the greater her chance of survival. But one in five women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are already too ill to receive any treatment.
NHS England is committed to ensuring that three quarters of cancers are diagnosed at an early stage (stage I or II) by 2028. We want to see the same commitment across the rest of the UK. It is an ambitious target. To achieve it for ovarian cancer, we must act now.
We're calling on all UK governments to transform early diagnosis of ovarian cancer. If you believe in a future where every woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer has the best chance of survival, sign our call to action.
Time is running out. It's time to TAKE OVAR and demand earlier diagnosis.
