Recognising the early symptoms of ovarian cancer.

23 May 2012 NICE has launched a quality standard to help with recognising the early symptoms of ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of gynaecological cancer in the UK, and has rising incidence. It is also the fifth most common cancer in women, with a lifetime risk of about 2 per cent in England and Wales.

Around 6,500 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year, leading to about 4,400 deaths.

It can be hard to diagnose the condition, since some of the symptoms of ovarian cancer are similar to those seen in more common conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome.

The quality standard consists of eight quality statements that describe high-quality, cost-effective care for the condition.

It says women aged 50 or above and reporting one or more symptoms occurring persistently, or frequently suggesting ovarian cancer, should be offered a CA125 test.

Furthermore, women with raised CA125 should have an ultrasound of their abdomen and pelvis within 2 weeks of receiving the CA125 test results.
