We would like to announce the release of a new guide for younger women with ovarian cancer. Ovacome, Ovarian Cancer Action, Target Ovarian Cancer and The Eve Appeal have produced A Younger Woman’s Guide to offer advice and support.
Every year 1,000 women under the age of 50 are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. On top of dealing with the emotions of a cancer diagnosis and the physical effects of treatment, younger women often face additional challenges including the loss of fertility and facing an early menopause, undergoing treatment whilst caring for young children, older relatives or a demanding job and struggling to cope with the financial burden a cancer diagnosis presents.
The new guide provides crucial information, advice and signposting to help women through the emotional, physical and psychological impact of a cancer diagnosis.
The Younger Women’s Guide features advice and quotes from women who have experiences of living with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer at a younger age and it was written in consultation with health professionals with expertise in treatment and the impact of treatment. It contains up-to-date information on treatment, relationships, fertility and early menopause. There is also support on coping with the impact cancer has on body image and sexuality, and coming to terms with not being able to have children.
