Gynae Cancers: A Brief Explainer

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 that gynae cancers exist, and the associated signs and symptoms of these brutal cancers.

The lack of basic knowledge about the female body or conversations around how the female anatomy works, is extremely worrying - how can we expect women to know what to look out for in terms of unexpected changes in their vagina or vulva or to be aware of the signs and symptoms of a gynaecological cancer, if they’re not body aware?

Watch our short video below, which explains all you need to know about all five gynae cancers; womb, ovarian, cervical, vulval and vaginal.
