The Crann Centre was delighted to mark World Ovarian Cancer Day on Saturday May 8th by participating in the #TeaLights campaign.
We encourage all women to know the signs of Ovarian Cancer. Ovarian cancer is the 4th leading cause of female cancer deaths in Ireland.
The BEAT Ovarian Cancer Campaign focuses on knowing your body and knowing the signs which can help with early detection!
If you experience any of the following symptoms for 3 weeks contact your GP as soon as possible. Do not let the pandemic stop you from seeking medical advice.
Bloating that is persistent and doesn’t come and go
Eating less and feeling full more quickly
Abdominal and pelvic pain you feel most days
Toilet changes in urination or bowel habits
You are encouraged to get involved in the #TEALights social media campaign from home. By lighting a tea light, patients, survivors, families and supporters will feel the solidarity of the Irish ovarian cancer community on that day.
