Today the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance have released a free app designed to help women learn more about the signs, risks, and symptoms of ovarian cancer, the app also tells you whether you should go and see a doctor.
The Ovarian Cancer Symptom Diary App allows women to learn more about the disease, answer risk factor questions, including use of hormone replacement and family history of cancer, as well as keeping a daily record of any ovarian cancer symptoms experienced, which include:
- Abdominal pressure, bloating, swelling or fullness
- Loss of appetite or feeling full quickly
- Pelvic/abdominal discomfort or pain
- Urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency)
If any of these symptoms are recorded for 14 days in any given month, the app will send an email to prompt the user to visit a doctor and be tested for the disease.
