There are five gynaecological cancers – womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal – but awareness levels of these cancers is very low.
Each year in the UK, over 21,000 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer. This means 58 people receive this life-changing news each and every day. Sadly, 21 of these women die a day from their gynaecological cancer.
That's far too many mothers, wives, daughters, partners and friends in our opinion, and at The Eve Appeal we're determined to change this. Part of our mission is to ensure that everyone is aware of what to look out for, because recognising gynaecological cancer symptoms can mean an earlier diagnosis and a better outcome.
