Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer deaths in women. Unfortunately, majority of the cases of ovarian cancer are discovered when the disease is advanced. Treatment is more effective when ovarian cancer is detected early.
What are the early warning signs of ovarian cancer?
Abdominal pain/pelvic pressure
Feeling full after a small meal
Increase in waist size. Do clothes feel smaller?
Loss of appetite
Constipation/diarrhea or prolonged change in bowel habits
Vaginal bleeding outside of usual pattern
Unexplained and unintentional weight loss or weight gain
Pain with intercourse
Don't ignore these symptoms, especially if they last more than 2 weeks. Early detection of ovarian cancer leads to significantly improved survival. Your concerns will be listened to, and taken seriously by me and my team. Let's talk soon.
