Ovarian and Prostate Cancer Awareness Month – March 2024

Posted on March 4th, 2024

Ovarian cancer, 1st to 31st March

March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Do you know whether you’re at risk of ovarian cancer? There are a number of risk factors including age and lifestyle.

Over 90% of women don’t know the main symptoms of ovarian cancer; are you one of them? The main symptoms include bloating, stomach pain, struggling to eat and weeing more. Find out more at the Ovarian Cancer Action website:

Prostate cancer, 1st to 31st March

One in eight men will get prostate cancer. If you’re a trans-woman or non-binary, your risk may be different. You can check your risk on the Prostate Cancer UK website: https://prostatecanceruk.org/risk-checker

Most men with early prostate cancer won’t notice any signs or symptoms. If you notice any of the following:

  • difficulty starting to urinate or emptying your bladder
  • a weak flow when you urinate
  • a feeling that your bladder hasn’t emptied properly
  • dribbling urine after you finish urinating
  • needing to urinate more often than usual, especially at night
  • a sudden need to urinate – you may sometimes leak urine before you get to the toilet…

you should make an appointment to speak to a member of your GP practice team.
