Ovarian Cancer Can Be Difficult To Detect Through Early and Late Stages
Ovarian cancer is a cancer that forms in an ovary. It results in abnormal cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. When this process begins, there may be no or only vague symptoms. Like many types of cancer, early detection of ovarian cancer is important. However, early-stage ovarian cancer rarely causes any symptoms and can be extremely difficult to detect. Early symptoms may include bloating, pelvic pain, abdominal swelling, and loss of appetite, among others.
Further, even advanced-stage ovarian cancer may cause few and nonspecific symptoms that are often mistaken for more common benign conditions. Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include: 1) Abdominal bloating or swelling, 2) Quickly feeling full when eating, 3) Weight loss, 4) Discomfort in the pelvis area, 5) Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation, and 6) A frequent need to urinate. These symptoms often become more noticeable as the cancer progresses.
Undetected or Treated Ovarian Cancer Oftens Spreads Into Other Parts of The Body
Once ovarian cancer progresses to its later stages, it commonly spreads or metastasizes to other parts of the body. Common areas to which ovarian cancer may spread include the lining of the abdomen, lining of the bowel and bladder, lymph nodes, lungs, and liver. It is important to seek immediate medical help if ovarian cancer has begun to spread to other parts of your body or a loved ones body.
Diagnoses and Treatment of Ovarian Cancer
There are several tests and procedures to detect and diagnose ovarian cancer. The initial exams include pelvic exams, but imaging and blood tests are also commonly used. However, sometimes ovarian cancer cannot be confirmed until after surgery is done. The most common type of ovarian cancer, comprising more than 95% of cases, is ovarian carcinoma. There are five main subtypes of ovarian carcinoma, of which high-grade serous is most common. These tumors are believed to start in the cells covering the ovaries, though some may form at the Fallopian tubes. Less common types of ovarian cancer include germ cell tumors and sex cord stromal tumors. A diagnosis of ovarian cancer is confirmed through a biopsy of tissue, usually removed during surgery.
If ovarian cancer is caught and treated in an early stage, it may be curable. Treatment usually includes some combination of surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Outcomes depend on the extent of the disease and the subtype of the cancer present. The overall five-year survival rate in the United States is 45%.
