Signs and Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer

Posted on 17 October, 2016 at 0:15

I got a chance to take part in a race called Run Like a Girl today.  It is to raise money and awareness for Ovarian Cancer.  It is one of the silent cancers; you don't know you've got it until its progressed.  I thought it would be appropriate to write down the signs and symptoms of Ovarian cancer.  Remember, it is good to listen to your body.  If you think something is just not quite right, then go to your doctor.  You are your own advocate.  If you don't speak up for you, no one else will.  There was a girl at the race today that had been diagnosed at 21 and she went to the doctor because she thought she had pneumonia.  


Early Detection is Key!

The Pap test detects cervical cancer, not ovarian!  The screening tests available for detection of Ovarian Cancer are: Pelvic exam, transvaginal ultrasound, and CA-125 Blood test (blood test is not always a key marker for the disease)


Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer:

  • Bloating
  • Pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Trouble eating or feeling full quickly
  • Feeling the need to urinate urgently or often
  • Back pain
  • Pain during sex
  • Fatigue
  • Upset stomach or heartburn
  • Constipation or menstrual changes
If symptoms are new and persist for more than 2 weeks, it is recommended that a woman see her doctor and a gynecologic oncologist if cancer is suspected.

For more information on Ovarian Cancer, go to www.ocrf.org.  Please share this information with all the women you know.  It is crucial to detect it early.
