September marks Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month (GCAM) and this year we will be supporting The Eve Appeal campaign, encouraging women across the UK to #KnowYourBody and to be aware of the signs and symptoms of the five gynaecological cancers.
There are five gynaecological cancers; cervical, ovarian, vaginal, vulval and womb. To find out more about the gynaecological cancers you can visit the following websites or see NHS Choices:
- Cancer Research UK
- The Eve Appeal (fundraises for research into fighting all five gynaecological cancers)
- Macmillan Cancer Support
- Ovarian Cancer Action
- Target Ovarian Cancer
Visit our Information section for details about cervical cancer prevention (cervical screening and the HPV vaccination), symptoms and treatment as well as support including our online Forum, Helpline, Ask the Expert service and support groups.
