Ovarian Cancer: A Danger You Should Know About

1,702 views

 Ovarian cancer is a malignant tumor that arises in the ovary (one of a pair of female reproductive glands in which the ova, or eggs, are formed). Ovarian cancer often causes non-specific symptoms, which contributes to the delay in diagnosis, resulting in a poorer prognosis.
Most cases of ovarian cancer is epithelial ovarian carcinomas (cancer that begins in cells on the surface of the ovary) or malignant tumor cell embryo (cancer that begins in egg cells).



What are the symptoms of ovarian cancer?

It is quite easy to detect ovarian cancer, because even in its early stages ovarian cancer demonstrates symptoms. Research indicates that about 95 percent of women with ovarian cancer had symptoms, but symptoms vary from woman to woman and often depend on tumor location and its impact on the organs around. In fact, many of the symptoms are similar to other conditions such as índrome colon or irritable bowel.

These are common symptoms of ovarian cancer:

  • You experience swelling.
  • You may have some abdominal or pelvic pain.
  • You also will most likely have difficulty eating or sentier full quickly.
  • It is not unusual to feel urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency).

The frequency and / or the number of such symptoms are key factors in the diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Therefore, women who have these symptoms almost daily for more than a few weeks are encouraged to contact a health professional.
