A free information meeting on ovarian cancer, aimed at patients and the public, will be held next Saturday, November 7 at the Ashling Hotel, Parkgate Street, Dublin 8 between 10am and 3pm.

There is no known method to prevent ovarian cancer. Knowledge of family history and awareness of possible symptoms are key. They include:

• Bloated feeling

• Persistent swollen abdomen

• Trapped wind

• Pain or dragging sensation in your lower abdomen or side

• Vague indigestion or nausea

• Poor appetite and feeling full quickly

• Changes in your bowel or bladder habits. For example, constipation or needing to pass water.
