More than 21,000 women in the UK are diagnosed each year with gynaecological cancer, which equates to 58 diagnoses each day.
Yet despite this, awareness levels among both women and men are startlingly low. That’s why here at #TeamEve we’re determined to change this by raising much-needed awareness of gynaecological cancers and their signs and symptoms.
We want everyone to know their body. We want to lift the veil of shame off of women's bodies and open up conversations so that everyone knows the difference between a vagina and a vulva, so that everyone knows there are five gynaecological cancers, and so that everyone knows their normal, can spot when something feels abnormal for them, and feel comfortable talking about it. Only then will everyone be able to access the healthcare they need, when they need it.
Watch our short video below, which explains all you need to know about all five gynae cancers; womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal.
Coronavirus pandemic: We’re experiencing a substantial increase in calls to our Ask Eve cancer information service. You can make sure women suffering with symptoms or who are facing a cancer diagnosis continue to get the answers and support they need by making a donation today.
