Cancer charity claims lives being cut short
12:00pm Saturday 2nd February 2013 in News
A CANCER charity has claimed the lives of women with ovarian cancer in the north west are being cut short because of delays to their diagnosis.
Figures published as part of Target Ovarian Cancer’s pathfinder study found 317 women in Greater Manchester and Cheshire are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year.
Early diagnosis saves lives but statistics have found one in four women took more than three months to visit their GP after experiencing symptoms and almost a third of women were not diagnosed until more than six months after first seeing their doctor.
