Tuesday 7 February 6:00–7:00pm online via Zoom
Around 1 in 50 people in the UK with ovaries will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their lifetime. This accounts for 2% of all cancers diagnosed in the UK each year.
When these patients are diagnosed at an early stage, almost all (98%) people with ovarian cancer will survive their disease for one or more years, compared with just 1 in 2 (54%) people when the disease is diagnosed at a late stage.
Many people, the general public and the wider academic community included, do not have an understanding of ovarian cancer and are unaware of the signs and symptoms to be on the lookout for. As a result of this, many are diagnosed at a later stage when any symptoms present become more persistent and cannot be ignored.
Join our experts for a free webinar on Tuesday 7 February where you can ask all your ovarian cancer-related questions!
