What is ovary cancer?
Ovary cancer develops when ovary cells make tumors and they get malignant. This is a silent killer and has no or little signs and even screening does not show them all. This is seen postmenopause or even women in their 30 s or 40 s. A study said early detection makes better results for curing and survival.
Sadly are no good valid tests but the CA125 blood test may give results like false negative and does not see malignancy. Another problem exists too. may signs are mistaken for other issues like IBS. So the tumor gets diagnosed on stage 3, too late.
4 signs of ovary cancer
- Bloating – chronic issue like this can last 3 weeks or more and might be tumor.
- Lower belly and pelvis pain – PMS cramps are normal and the pain that goes along lasts even 3 weeks so it might be ovary cancer. Those before menopause must be careful, this imitates periods.
- Hard time/eating, swallowing, feeling full – less appetite means if over 3 weeks you develop issues like bowel issues, intestines, and such. Might be cancer, but still talk with a doctor.
- More urinating – if you see yourself going to the toilet often, and the liquid is hanging, might be ovary cancer also not holding it or passing it freely is just as well.
Most such signs are mistaken for diseases and problems in the GI. If you had them or have them, see the frequency and such, if this does not change in few weeks, talk with a doctor.
Monitor the health for early detecting and survival.
