Wellbeing of Women funds vital medical research on the gynaecological cancers.
Gynaecological cancers are less common than breast cancer but many of the early symptoms can often be missed, meaning a late diagnosis and a delay in treatment. The treatment of all cancers has a much greater chance of success if it is discovered as early as possible.
The most common symptom of gynaecological cancer is unusual bleeding. Bleeding at any time, other than during your period, is considered unusual. If you have this symptom, you should make an appointment to see your doctor immediately.
