Know Your Risks
About 20 to 25 percent of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer have a hereditary tendency to develop the disease.
Many factors can increase or decrease a woman's risk of developing ovarian cancer.
- Family history of breast, ovarian or colon cancer
- Genetic mutations like BRCA
- Increased age
- Use of oral contraceptives
Know the Symptoms
- Difficulty Eating
- Pelvic / Abdominal Pain
- Urinary Frequency
If these symptoms occur for more than 2 weeks and these symptoms are new or unusual for you, see a gynecologist and ask about ovarian cancer. Research shows that seeing a gynecologic oncologist for surgery and treatment significantly improves outcomes.

OCRFA and our amazing advocates brought #TealAction to Capitol Hill on March 6, highlighting the need for increased ovarian cancer research funding and support at the federal level. Together, we are the voice of the ovarian cancer community. Join us for our next Advocacy Day on July 16th!
