September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

  • Print

One in 71 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer … and sadly only 46 percent of those diagnosed will survive beyond five years.  BUT … there is some good news: IF detected early, the five year survival rate JUMPS to over 90%.

 

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center is doing its part to break the silence on ovarian cancer. Methodist wants you to know the symptoms of ovarian cancer, which can include persistent bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, and trouble eating. They also want you to know the risk factors for ovarian cancer and that Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center has medical experts that treat ovarian cancer.

 

Plus, you can help get the word out by teaming up with sponsor Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center for the 5th Annual Walk to Break the Silence on Saturday, September 24th at Lake Zorinsky. You can walk one to four miles for ovarian cancer awareness and research.  Sign up for the Walk to Break the Silence on ovarian cancer at ovarian.org.
