February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. 

This year it is estimated 1,580 Australian women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and a further 1047 women will die from the disease. With no early detection test, it is essential that women know the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, and their family history. 

The theme for this year's campaign is #KnowAskAct.

KNOW the signs and symptoms, ASK for help if you have symptoms or ask others if they know the symptoms, and ACT by helping to raise awareness about this disease.
