They said "Be Clear on Cancer targets cancers where there is evidence that the symptoms are not widely known and where raising awareness of these is likely to increase rates of early diagnosis"
Knowing that many of the women who come to us had never heard of womb before being diagnosed I would say that the symptoms are not widely known and therefore there needs to be an awareness campaign.
So WCSUK is asking you to email your MP as soon as you can. The General Election is around 2 months away and we need to start making some noise if we are to get womb cancer taken seriously.
You can find our who your MP is and their contact details here http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/
I am sick and tired of struggling to get the word out about womb cancer. It sometimes feels like I am banging my head against a brick wall and no one is taking any notice.
Ask your MP to ask Public Health England and the Dept. of Health why they are not giving womb cancer the same kind of attention as ovarian or cervical. Tell them that more women are diagnosed with womb cancer than ovarian or cervical. Tell them that you go through the same kind of treatment as those women yet we are overlooked time and again. It's almost as if womb cancer patients don't exist.
There are over 70.000 of us living with womb cancer in UK and it's time our voices were heard.
Please help raise awareness of womb cancer.
