A CAMPAIGN to raise awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer has been touring Lancashire.

The Be Clear on Cancer roadshow is part of Public Health England’s regional pilot in the North West, to raise awareness of the fact that feeling bloated, most days, for three weeks or more, could be a sign of ovarian cancer.

Professor Paul Johnstone, the body’s regional director, said: “Figures show more needs to be done to raise awareness. Finding ovarian cancer early makes it more treatable.

“Increasing awareness of potential symptoms, and encouraging women to visit their doctor if they experience them, could ultimately help save lives.”
