World Ovarian Cancer Day Symptom Checker

Have you told yourself that "it’s just bloating, it could be worse?"

How about, “My period is weird lately, nothing serious.”

“It’s just food intolerance, I’ll deal with it some other time.”

“I’m too young for ovarian cancer…”

Think again. ovarian cancer doesn’t discriminate based on age, and it doesn’t wait for you to have more time to take care of yourself. If you have ovaries and any of these symptoms for more than 2 weeks, you could be at risk.

Why Check Yourself?

Every year over 300 000 people hear the words “you have ovarian cancer”. It could be your sister, your daughter, your mother, your partner... It could be you.

It’s the least survivable gynaecological cancer, but it often misses out on the big campaigns, donations, and research grants. As with any type of cancer, earlier diagnosis and treatment can make a big difference, but our biggest challenge is that research to develop better diagnosis and treatments is severely underfunded. We need your help!

May 8th is World Ovarian Cancer Day: an amazing initiative of the World Ovarian Cancer Coalition. But for us, every day is ovarian cancer day.

We’re speaking up because we want the next generation of women to know what to look for, and have better treatments and survival if they too hear the words we did.

This campaign was put together by women living with Ovarian Cancer from America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom - with the help of generous companies donating billboard space and services - to get the message out there. We have low-grade serous ovarian cancer. A difficult to treat ovarian cancer that disproportionately affects young women.

Ovarian cancer needs to be taken seriously. If you have symptoms, please get checked. And help us fund research so more women can have a future.
