Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month
September marks Gynaecological Cancer Awareness Month (GCAM). Each year in the UK, over 21,000 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer. This means 58 people receive this life-changing news each and every day. Sadly, 21 of these women die a day from their gynaecological cancer. There are five gynaecological cancers; cervical, ovarian, vaginal, vulval and womb. It is very important to seek medical advice as early as possible if you experience any symptoms or changes. As this will increase you chance of recovery.
