Coronavirus and ovarian cancer

Advice on how to protect yourself against coronavirus has been evolving. We've worked with experts to put together relevant and accurate information that is continually reviewed and updated.

We know that this is a particularly difficult time to be living with ovarian cancer or experiencing any worrying symptoms. You and your family might be worried about how your care could be impacted as a result of the coronavirus.

Please remember that you can always call our support line on 020 7923 5475 (9am–5pm, Mon–Fri) if you have any concerns or questions or just need someone to talk to.
