A BE Clear on Cancer roadshow will visit Trafford this week to raise awareness of possible symptoms of ovarian cancer.
Latest figures show that 286 women were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 129 died of the disease, in Greater Manchester in 2011.
The roadshow is part of Public Health England’s Be Clear on Cancer regional pilot in the north west to raise awareness of the fact that feeling bloated, most days, for three weeks or more could be a sign of ovarian cancer.
The Be Clear on Cancer roadshow will be at the Square Shopping Centre, Sale on March 20-22.
