FOUR SIMPLE STEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO REDUCE YOUR RISK 

 

  1. Know your personal and family history and other factors that can increase your risk.

  2. Know the symptoms that might be a sign of ovarian cancer.

  3. Have a gynecological exam every year.* And talk to your doctor about your ovarian cancer risk, and if you should participate in ovarian cancer prevention strategies.

  4. Talk to your doctor immediately if you experience any of the ovarian cancer symptoms described in this brochure on a daily basis for 2-3 weeks.

 

* It is important to know that a Pap smear only screens for cervical cancer and does not screen for ovarian cancer.
