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.
