A ROADSHOW is visiting town to raise awareness of possible symptoms of ovarian cancer.

Latest figures for St Helens show 23 women were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 10 died of the disease in 2011.

The event is part of Public Health England’s Be Clear on Cancer regional pilot in the North West to raise awareness of the fact that feeling bloated, most days, for three weeks or more could be a sign of ovarian cancer.

More than 90per cent of women diagnosed with the earliest stage of ovarian cancer survive the disease for at least five years.

The Be Clear on Cancer roadshow was at St Helens Church Square Shopping Centre last week and will be at the Hardshaw Shopping Centre until Friday, March 15. For more information visit nhs.uk/persistentbloating.
