Do you know that one in 78 women would have ovarian cancer in their lifetime? Shocking isnt it!!

It is well known that ovaries refer to the female reproductive organs that produce egg or ova. This egg or ova would travel down the fallopian tubes into the uterus after release. Inside the uterus, the egg or ova might get fertilized by sperm. The hormones secreted by the ovaries play a huge role in menstruation and fertility etc. Cancer diagnosed in the ovaries of a woman is ovarian cancer. Point is that 4 out of 5 women with ovarian cancer would not be diagnosed in the early stages. Many women would wrongly associate symptoms of ovarian cancer with IBS, UTI etc.

Various warning signs or symptoms of ovarian cancer that gets overlooked are


Fact is that nearly 72% of women with ovarian cancer experience bloating issues. It must be taken into note that bloating occurs during menstruation or after eating certain foods etc. Point is that bloating is often related to the build up of fluid inside the abdomen. Changes in the abdominal blood supply and bodys ability to drain fluids could lead to bloating. Free floating cancer cells would be able to move to another area in the body by using the fluid that has been built up.

Abdominal or pelvic pain:

Women with ovarian cancer have pain in their abdomen or pelvic area and this is an important warning sign. This feeling of pain is different for different women. Fact is that when the tumour grows it would put pressure on other important organs like bowels, bladder, rectum etc.

Changes in bathroom habits:

Information is that nearly 20% of women with ovarian cancer would have issues like constipation, diarrhoea etc. Those with ovarian cancer would have the need to urinate frequently. Around 7% of those with cancer showed urinary issues in them.

Severe back pain:

In the lives of women, the majority of the time back pain could be due to an injury and not due to ovarian cancer etc. It is well known that back pain is one common issue many people have these days. Those with ovarian cancer would show symptoms like pain in their lower back or in their sides etc.

Changes in appetite:

Loss of appetite can happen in some women with ovarian cancer. Other women with ovarian cancer might feel full even after eating just a small quantity. Issues like indigestion, nausea and vomiting would be there after consuming the food. Truth is that these changes in the appetetite could result in unintentional weight loss. It is common to diagnose the changes in appetite as acid reflux initially.

Menstrual changes:

Women with ovarian cancer would have missed periods, or heavy bleeding etc. Normally, after menopause, bleeding would not be there. In those women with ovarian cancer, bleeding would occur.

Pain during sex:

Though this issue could be due to several reasons like endometriosis, vaginal dryness, inflammation etc, it could also be due to ovarian cancer. So, please take care.
