Many women are told that PPC is a type of ovarian cancer and it is usually treated in the same way. However, it does not originate in the ovaries but a different part of the body called the peritoneum.
We recommend Target Ovarian Cancer which provides information and support.
We acknowledge with gratitude the support for Women’s Health Concern from Dr Pamela Todd (1968-2017). Her generous bequest to our Charity will be directed towards the professional development of General Practitioners, especially in the diagnosis and treatment of Primary Peritoneal Cancer (PPC).
Pamela held senior positions in the pharmaceutical industry and was wholly committed to delivering care to women in mid-life. She was a true colleague and friend.
