Information & support Ovarian cancer symptoms Symptom Diary The Ovacome Symptom Diary has been verified by the head of our Expert Advisory Panel, Professor Sean Kehoe. Our B.E.A.T. symptom diary allows you to keep a record of your symptoms. This can help you to discuss how you are feeling with your doctor, who can then decide if tests or scans are necessary. Remember: Symptoms of ovarian cancer can vary from person to person. Although ovarian cancer can occur at any age, it mostly occurs in people over the age of 50. If you have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer you may be more at risk. Cervical screening (smear test) does not detect ovarian cancer. If you have any of the symptoms and they are new and persistent, tell your doctor. If you would like us to send you a printed version of the symptom diary in the post, call 0800 008 7054 or email [email protected] . Download our B.E.A.T. symptom diary . .
