Ovarian Cancer Symptoms

Tuesday, 29 Mar 2011 09:50 AM

Ovarian Cancer affects over 6,000 women each year and often goes undetected for long periods of time. Your risk increases as you age – four in five cases occur after age 50.

Here are the most important symptoms of ovarian cancer to recognize:
  • abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • persistent pelvic or stomach pain
  • frequent bloating feeling full quickly
  • frequent urination
  • changes in bowel movements
  • back pain
  • chronic tiredness
Studies have shown that taking the Pill for at least five years lowers your risk of developing ovarian cancer. Reducing your waist size to 30 inches or below will also decrease your risk of developing ovarian cancer.
