Support, Hope & Education

Gynaecological Cancer Group

Gynaecological Cancer is the highest killer in female cancers and is often the most misdiagnosed which leads to the high mortality rate. We would like to see these number decrease by providing knowledge and understanding of these cancers. One of the frustrating things, is there is no early detection test for any of the five (5) except for Cervical Cancer.

In 2020 it is predicted 1,532 Australian women will be diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Ovarian Cancer alone has a 5 year survival rate of 47%, this is due to the misdiagnosis and the confusion of the signs and symptoms not just for the patients but also the GP’s.

S.H.E Gynaecological Cancer Group is here to educate you on symptoms to look out for, to lower the diagnosis time, improve the mortality rate, and to support Tasmanian women diagnosed with this insidious disease.

Patients tell us they don’t know where to turn to receive professional support during diagnosis and treatment… and we are working to change that!
