K is for K.I.S.S

Know the important signs and symptoms to detect ovarian cancer.

Each year 1,300 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 800 women will lose their battle with the disease.Ovarian cancer is a disease where some of the cells in one or both ovaries start to grow abnormally and develop into cancer.

Ovarian Cancer Australia is urging women to make sure they know the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. Common symptoms include:

  • bloating or increase girth
  • pressure symptoms on either bladder or bowel
  • digestive upsets or feeling of fullness when eating
  • pain may occur, but is frequently not specific

To help women with this, Ovarian Cancer Australia has developed the K.I.S.S. & Make Up App – which features a symptom diary to help women track their symptoms, along with makeup tips from Miranda Kerr’s Australian makeup artist. The app is free and available for download.

Since there is no screening test for ovarian cancer, the best thing women can do is get to know their bodies and what is normal for you so that unusual changes are recognised.
