Diagnosed With Ovarian Cancer? No Woman Should Go Through It Alone

Breast cancer can be screened through a mammogram while cervical cancer has HPV tests, but what about ovarian cancer? While ovarian cancer is rare, it is often diagnosed in the late stages because of the challenges with picking it up early. We speak to specialist in obstetrics and gynaecology Dr Yogeeta Gunasagran to find out whether screening and treatment for ovarian cancer has improved, and we also hear from Joselyn Pang about her journey with ovarian cancer.
