“Until there is a test, awareness is best.” Through awareness campaigns, women will become more aware of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer. Women’s lives will be saved through early prevention. As research work continues towards finding a cure for ovarian cancer, physicians remain focused on providing women with accurate, timely information about signs and symptoms, offering genetic and screening information.
A list of symptoms that would alert women to get medical advice include: bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, feeling full after eating, frequent urination, and abnormal bleeding. Although these symptoms can be caused by conditions other than ovarian cancer, women who experience these symptoms almost daily for more than a couple of weeks should see an MD or gynecologist.
If there is a problem, see a gynecologist/oncologist who is trained in ovarian cancer.
Save the date: On Sept. 9, 2012, the Ovarian Cancer Coalition will hold the Ovarian Cancer Walk/Run at 7 a.m. at CBS Studios in Studio City.
