WOMEN are being encouraged to seek medical advice if they experience any symptoms of ovarian cancer.

Wigan Council is supporting the national Be Clear on Cancer ovarian cancer awareness campaign, which aims to educate women about the signs of ovarian cancer.

Symptoms include bloating most days for three weeks or more, feeling full quickly or loss of appetite, pelvic or stomach pain and extreme fatigue.
