The Nude Lunch – Ovarian Cancer Exposed
Ovarian Cancer is the 8th most common cancer diagnosed and the 6th most common cause of cancer death. More than 1200 Australian women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year and currently the testing for ovarian cancer (transvaginal ultrasound(TVUS) and the CA-125 blood test) both have a lot of flaws in detection and are often not done until symptoms of ovarian cancer present themselves.
Something has to be done.
And something is being done. It’s called The Nude Lunch. Here’s what you need to know about it.
The Nude Lunch is a gourmet lunch buffet (champagne, wine, beers and spirits included up to 4pm) with the aim of raising money to ensure research for ovarian cancer can continue and to ensure a greater awareness is being delivered. Education is imperative and ovarian cancer deserves the same consideration that many others cancers already receive.

Let’s face it mums, ovarian cancer is scary. It is a silent killer and it is one that often comes with no symptoms. Later stage symptoms can include abdominal swelling or bloating (due to a mass or a buildup of fluid), pelvic pressure or abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, and/or urinary symptoms (having to go urgently or often).
The risk of developing ovarian cancer increases with age, with about 80 percent of women diagnosed being older than 50 years.
