One Stop Ovarian Cyst Service

What are the risk factors for ovarian cancer?

Ovarian Cancer is the most common gynaecological cancer in the UK

Most cases of ovarian cancer occur after the menopause with 90% occurring in women over 45 years old. However, the risk is doubled in women who have never had any children. There is a small increase with women where there is a strong family history of ovarian and other cancers and who carry a faulty BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene. 

What are the signs of Ovarian Cancer?

There are very few early signs as symptoms present themselves usually in the advanced stages when the treatment is less effective. Some women experience persistent pelvic pain, increased abdominal size, persistent bloating and difficulty in eating and feeling full.
