Frequently Asked Questions

What does The Eve Appeal do?

The Eve Appeal was launched in 2002 and is the only national UK charity dedicated to funding world-class research and raising awareness for the prevention and early diagnosis of all five gynaecological cancers (womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal).

In the UK, 58 women and people with gynae organs are diagnosed and 21 die each and every day from a gynaecological cancer – yet funding and awareness of these diseases remains low. We are determined to change this by funding research focused on developing effective methods of risk prediction, and earlier detection that will ultimately save lives, not only in the UK but around the world.

How does my donation help?

Your generous support goes towards The Eve Appeal being able to continue funding innovative, life-saving research into the prevention and early diagnosis of the five gynaecological cancers. As well as raise awareness of their signs and symptoms, whilst breaking down the taboos and stigma around gynaecological health. Your donation will also help keep our nurse-led information line running, for free of charge, confidential information for people concerned about symptoms they or their friends and family may be having.

Where can I find out more about gynaecological cancers?

We have information available about each gynaecological cancer in our dedicated information pages, including key signs and symptoms associated with them, the tests you might go through to get a diagnosis, and the treatments which are available.

Where can I download your awareness leaflet?

If you would rather download a copy of our information leaflets, which cover all five gynaecological cancers, you can do so through our dedicated resources, or if you would like a printed copy please send us an email.

I think I may have some of the symptoms of gynaecological cancer, what should I do?

If you have any concerns or are worried about the signs and symptoms it is important to speak to your doctor straight away, or alternatively talk to our confidential specialist gynaecological cancer information service Ask Eve. As it is always worth getting symptoms checked out.

I have / know someone who has just been diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer, who can I speak to?

The Eve Appeal runs a unique, specialist gynaecological cancer information service – Ask Eve – which is led by our dedicated gynaecological specialist nurse Tracie Miles. The service offers information and support on all five gynaecological cancers- including signs and symptoms, risk factors and related issues such as genetic testing.
