One per cent of women are aware that needing the toilet more is a symptom of ovarian cancer – a new survey has found.
A poll conducted by Target Ovarian Cancer revealed that common symptoms of the disease – such as abdominal pain and feeling full – went unrecognised as such by most English women.
Just one fifth of the 1,000 women surveyed identified frequent bloating as a symptom.
