Ovarian Cancer Day

Annually on the 8th May, it is World Ovarian Cancer Day (WOCD). The mission of the National Ovarian Cancer day (NOCD) is to save lives by fighting tirelessly to prevent ovarian cancer, and to improve the quality of life for survivors.

Every year about quarter of a million women around the world are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and 140,000 women die of it, making it the cancer for women with the lowest survival rate. Due to a widespread lack of awareness and the unavailability of high cost medicines, many cases of Ovarian Cancer are diagnosed late, leading to ‘poor outcomes’. The purpose of WOCD is to address this problem and to educate women and their communities about the risks, symptoms and screening of ovarian cancer. On this day, Drugssquare Online Pharmacy pay their attention to raise awareness about the Ovarian Cancer and helps those patients (via medicines) which are suffering from such life threatening disease.

Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is a disease in which depending on the type and stage of the disease, malignant (cancerous) cells are found inside, near, or on the outer layer of the ovaries. As the cancer grows it may affect nearby organs such as the bladder and large bowel, causing frequent urination and constipation. Ovarian cancer shuts down immune system cells that would otherwise act as a first line of defense against the deadly tumor.
