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!

Remember to listen to your body and if something doesn’t feel normal for you, please speak to your GP.Never doubt that our bodies are magnificent, wondrous, and intricately, intelligently detailed.

This incredible visual from @docshawarma (via @vbmaternitywellnessllc — is of an adult, post menopausal uterus removed in a radical hysterectomy. . “The average uterus is 3-4 inches by 2.5 inches. In menstruating woman [sic] the uterus grows up to 3x its original size. When your baby reaches full term, your uterus will be bigger than five times its original size with a capacity of 500 times more than before you conceived. It'll be 15 times heavier on its own without the baby and the placenta. After you give birth, the uterus immediately starts contracting to shrink itself. One week after delivery it'll weigh about 1.5 pounds but two weeks after birth it'll be down to 11 ounces. By the six week after pregnancy it'll be back to its pre-pregnancy weight of 2.5 ounces.” .
