Gynaecological Cancer: Signs And Symptoms Every Woman Should Know

You’ve probably got to grips with your period by now but what even is life if your monthly cycle doesn’t throw a curveball at you every now and then? Spotting, heavy bleeding, brown discharge – there’s a whole load of abnormalities your flow can throw your way, but the key is to #KnowYourBody so you can figure out if these symptoms are something more.

Sadly, every day in the UK, 58 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer and 21 will die. So we’ve teamed up with The Eve Appeal in support of Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month to help educate women on the key signs and symptoms of the five gynae cancers. Because talking saves lives, guys.

Watch the video below to get clued up on everything you need to look out for when it comes to ovarian, womb, cervical, vaginal and vulval cancer.
