Help & support Symptoms Symptom Diary The Ovacome Symptom Diary will be coming mid-September and has been verified by the Head of our Medical Advisory Board. Our B.E.A.T. symptom diary will allow 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 woman to woman. Although ovarian cancer can occur at any age, it mostly occurs in women over the age of 50. If you have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer you may be more at risk. Smear tests do not detect ovarian cancer. If you have any of the symptoms and they are new and persistent, tell your doctor.
