Thousands of women at risk from ovarian cancer are being offered hope of new test to detect the condition in its early stages – before it becomes more difficult to treat effectively.

Currently, women identified as being at high risk are offered the choice of invasive surgery or waiting until symptoms appear – symptoms which are very hard to spot. However, the latest results from the trial of a new method of screening offers the chance of another choice.

We chatted to Athena Lamnisos, Chief Executive of leading gynaecological cancer research charity The Eve Appeal, about the initial outcomes of the research, and offer advice to women worried about symptoms and diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
