Early Detection of Ovarian Cancer Can Save Lives & Increase a Woman's Chance of Survival
Ovarian cancer is a hard to detect form of cancer that forms in a woman's ovary. It commonly results in abnormal cells that have the ability to metastasize to other parts of a woman's body. When ovarian cancer begins, there may be no or only vague symptoms. Symptoms do become more noticeable as the cancer progresses. These symptoms may include bloating, pelvic pain, abdominal swelling, and loss of appetite, among others. Common areas to which the cancer may spread include the lining of the abdomen, lining of the bowel and bladder, lymph nodes, lungs, and liver. 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.
