Research from a cancer charity has found that over half of ovarian cancer cases are misdiagnosed.
According to Target Ovarian Cancer, up to 500 lives could be saved if the disease was diagnosed much earlier.
Early diagnosis is at the core of our £750 million cancer strategy and plays a vital role in our aim to improve cancer survival rates and save an extra 5,000 lives every year by 2014.
This is why last week we launched the Be Clear on Cancer campaign to raise public awareness of the key symptoms of ovarian cancer and encourage those with the symptoms to visit their GP.
