Ovarian Cancer Symptoms
These symptoms are more likely to occur in women with ovarian cancer than the women in the general population.
* Bloating, Gas
* Pelvic Or Abdominal Pain
* Difficulty Eating Or Feeling Full Quickly
* Urinary Symptoms (Urgency Or Frequency)
Women who have these symptoms almost daily for more than a few weeks should see their doctor, preferably a gynecologist.
Have an annual vaginal/rectal pelvic exam, and if you have symptoms ask for a transvaginal ultrasound and a CA 125 blood test.
Early detection saves lives.......
