Women in Carlow and Kilkenny urged to watch out for signs of Ovarian Cancer

Women across Carlow and Kilkenny are being advised to watch out for the early signs of Ovarian Cancer on this World Ovarian Cancer Day.

These include persistent bloating, eating less and feeling full more quickly, and abdominal and pelvic pain.

Despite being the fourth most common female cancer in this country, there have not been as many advances in the diagnosis and treating of it, compared to other forms of the disease.

Breakthrough Cancer Research says they want all women to be aware of the signs.
