Ovarian Cancer Symptoms

Many people have asked me about the symptoms of ovarian cancer; unfortunately, there are often none until it's advanced stages when a tumor has become large enough to feel, and is more difficult to treat.  Certain types are very resistant to treatment.  This is why ovarian cancer is sometimes called the "Silent Killer".  More than 2/3 of  the women diagnosed do not survive 5 years.

However, sometimes ovarian cancer whispers its symptoms. Listen to your body and be aware of:

* Pelvic or abdominal pain, discomfort, swelling, bloating, hardness and/or feeling of fullness
* Vague but persistent gastrointestinal (tummy) upsets-such as gas, nausea and indigestion
* Frequency and/or urgency of urination in the absence of an infection
* Unexplained weight gain or weight loss
* Ongoing, unusual fatigue
* Unexplained changes in bowel habits

If symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR!
Be assertive! Insist on an exam, blood tests and an ultra-sound.

A Pap test looks for cervical cancer; it will NOT detect ovarian cancer.

Ovarian cancer can strike any female, 
even very young girls and women with no family history.

The Truth About Cancer

Cancer death rates are going down. Fewer people are dying. Gazillions of dollars spent on cancer research since the 1970's has greatly improved peoples lives. It all sounds so good, doesn't it? Too bad its not reality.

A statistical engineer once told me that numbers can be manipulated to say whatever you want. And when the government is mandating the goals, dolling out the money and engineering the stats, you can be sure they are skewing the message to serve their needs. And what elected officials "need" is to stay in office where the money flows like an oil slick in the Gulf--without restraint or accountability.

MORE children are getting cancer than ever before.

Many times I've read statements like that and thought to myself, "conspiracy theory radicals and alarmist will say anything for attention". I am a logical thinker; things need to be sensibly explained with facts before I believe.  And far too often radical theories are emotionally shouted with no facts cited to back them up. It was easy to believe that if there were more cancer cases it was due to the fact that there are more people, and that medical science was getting better at diagnosing cancer.  But that's not the case.

I have been (nearly compulsively) researching cancer since April, 2009. Desperate for FACTS. TRUTH. I was extremely frustrated at how difficult it was to find even basic information. Until a few days ago. Buried deep in the website of the US Government's National Cancer Institute, I finally found a 1-page report that made me so angry I was shaking; so sad I was crying.


My favorite word in the English language is "why". I had already found many answers to my cancer questions, but the pieces didn't fit together into a logical, complete picture until I read that report and it all clicked. "What to do now?", I wondered. I wanted to start calling people and shouting it from the rooftops: "MORE AMERICANS ARE BEING DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER THAN EVER BEFORE!"

Why am I so driven to get this message out to people?  Because I believe we can change the world.  I want to end surgeries that leave children sterile, brain damaged and without limbs.  I want to end chemotherapy and radiation "treatments" that destroy people's immune systems and cause serious, life-long health problems and early death.  I want to end the heartache of millions of families around the world.

I am sick and tired of the sugar-coated fairy-tales found in the "main-stream-media".  I believe people will be motivated to demand change when they are told the TRUTH about cancer: A higher percentage of people are being diagnosed with cancer now than ever before!! Childhood cancer incidence rates are particularly disturbing as nearly every type has seen increases since the 1970's. In fact, cancer kills more than 1 person every single minute, more than 1600 people every day, and that's only in the U.S.  We MUST change the way we approach treatment and prevention of cancer, NOW!
