4 Ovarian Cancer Symptoms That Every Woman Needs To Know

October 15, 2019

4 Early Symptoms Of Ovarian Cancer That Every
Woman Needs To Know Cancer is one of the leading causes of death
worldwide. For many years scientists and researchers
have worked around the clock to try and find cures for every type of cancer. To the present day we are still learning about
this deadly disease, and without a cure, we are left watching out for signs and symptoms
that can help lead to a diagnosis. Take ovarian cancer for example, according
to statistics, Canada was estimated to have 2,800 cases of this cancer and 1,750 deaths
from those cases in 2016. The United States was estimated to have 22,280
new cases and a total of 14,240 deaths in 2016. The reason why there is such a high death
total is that this cancer is incredibly hard to diagnose. There is currently no test that can be done
to diagnose it, and the symptoms are often mistaken for other diseases. However, new research has indicated that there
are promising signs and symptoms of early ovarian cancer. With that said, don’t forget to subscribe
to our channel for more daily tips like this and turn on notifications so you never miss
our new videos! Before I get into the early signs and symptoms
of ovarian cancer, here is a little bit of information about the disease. There are three types of ovarian cancer; first,
you have the epithelial tumors, which start on the tissue that is found outside of the
ovaries. Almost 90 percent of ovarian cancer cases
are epithelial tumors. Next, you have the stromal tumors; they start
on the ovarian tissue that is responsible for producing hormone cells. These tumors are diagnosed at the early stages
and about 7 percent of ovarian tumors are stromal. The last type is germ cell tumors; they start
in the egg-producing cells. Generally, this type of tumor only occurs
in younger women. It’s important to understand the risk factors
associated with ovarian cancer as well as its various stages and the different treatment
options available to women. Understanding more about ovarian cancer can
help you know what types of things to look out for in the event that you are worried
you may be at risk for ovarian cancer. Risk Factors: Let’s take a look at risk
factors for ovarian cancers first. Like most diseases, there are certain risk
factors that need to be taken into consideration when talking about ovarian cancer. Take your age for example; anyone can be diagnosed
with ovarian cancer, but those who are 50 to 60 years old have a higher risk of being
diagnosed with it. Also, it is possible to inherit the gene mutation
that causes it. The gene is breast cancer gene 1 and breast
cancer gene 2. Other risk factors associated with ovarian
cancer include being overweight or obese. Studies suggest that women who are obese may
have a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer, and that obesity may also affect the survival
chances of a woman who has developed ovarian cancer. This is why it is important to visit your
doctor if you are obese or overweight to find out how you can improve your lifestyle to
reduce your risk of developing ovarian cancer as well as other types of cancer. Studies also state that women who have children
after the age of 35 have a higher risk of ovarian cancer, while other studies suggest
that women who take hormone therapy after menopause (for example, estrogen) may be more
at risk of developing ovarian cancer. Women who take estrogen without progesterone
are more likely to develop ovarian cancer as opposed to women who take both estrogen
and progesterone. Diagnosis: As I mentioned, there is no test
that can show ovarian cancer, but there are other tests that can help doctors make a decision. The first test is an imaging test that includes
an ultrasound or CT scan of the pelvis and abdomen. These two tests can help tell the size and
shape of a woman’s ovaries. The second test is a blood test that can detect
a protein (CA 125) that is usually found in ovarian cancer cases. Stages of Ovarian Cancer: There are 4 stages
of ovarian cancer. Stage 1 of ovarian cancer is when the cancer
is found in one or both ovaries. Stage 2 is when the cancer has begun to spread
to other areas of the pelvis. In stage 3, the cancer has now spread to the
abdomen. The final stage is when the cancer is found
outside the abdomen. Treatment: There are various different types
of treatment options available for women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The type of treatment a woman receives depends
on how advanced the cancer has become. Treatments for ovarian cancer include local
treatments which treat the tumor. This may include surgery to remove the tumor
or even radiation therapy. Systemic treatments, on the other hand, reach
the cancer cells which are located anywhere in the body. This type of treatment is given in the form
of drugs, and can be taken in pill form or injected into the bloodstream. Different types of drug treatment for ovarian
cancer include chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy. Treatment plants vary depending on the type
of ovarian cancer a woman is diagnosed with and the stage of cancer she is in. Most women who are diagnosed with ovarian
cancer receive surgery to remove the tumor, while other forms of treatment will vary depending
on how advanced the cancer is. For more information about treatment for ovarian
cancer, consult with your doctor today. Now, let’s explore the most common early
signs of ovarian cancer. Here are 4 early symptoms of ovarian cancer
that every woman needs to know. 1. Constant Bloating: If you are experiencing
constant bloating that is out of the ordinary (usually lasting for three weeks or longer),
this could be a sign of ovarian cancer. The best thing to do in this situation is
to consult your doctor to get a proper diagnosis. If you are experiencing unusual bloating that
lasts for more than three weeks, you should speak to your doctor to rule out the possibility
of ovarian cancer or any other type of cancer, particularly if you are over the age of 50
or if there is a history of breast or ovarian cancer in your family, which can put you at
higher risk for developing those types of cancers. 2. Pain In Your Pelvis or Lower Abdomen: It is
normal for women to feel pain in their stomach, pelvis and abdomen area during menstruation. But when that pain does not subside long after
the woman is done menstruating, it could be a sign of ovarian cancer. This sign is particularly important for women
to watch out for because it is often mistaken for period pain. If you experience any unusual pain in your
pelvis, lower abdomen, or even feel fatigue in your legs, it is best to speak to a doctor. In addition to pain in your pelvis or lower
abdomen, another symptom of ovarian cancer is extreme fatigue. If you are feeling extremely tired or weak,
or your body and muscles do not feel as strong as they used to, monitor your body. If this continues over a period of weeks,
it is best to consult your doctor. Be sure to mention any other unusual health
issues or symptoms you may be experiencing. 3. Eating Issues: If you notice that you are
becoming less hungry over a three-week span, you should go consult your doctor. It could be issues with your stomach or intestines,
but it could also be a sign of ovarian cancer, so it’s best not to leave it up to chance. In addition to losing your appetite, another
common symptom of ovarian cancer is a constant feeling of being full, increased weight loss,
or excessive weight gain. In addition to these types of eating issues,
you may also experience heartburn and gastrointestinal issues such as burping. Other symptoms or signs of ovarian cancer
include constipation, diarrhea, nausea, indigestion and heartburn. If you are experiencing issues with weight
loss or gain, or have noticed that you have developed unusual or painful stomach issues,
speak to your doctor immediately to rule out the possibility of ovarian cancer. 4. Urgent Need to Urinate: If you notice that
you are constantly running to the bathroom to urinate and you have made no changes to
the amount of liquid you consume, this could be an early sign of ovarian cancer. Also, if you feel fine one minute and two
minutes later you are running to the bathroom, it could be a bladder infection but also ovarian
cancer. There are many different symptoms which are
associated with ovarian cancer. Some more common symptoms of ovarian cancer
include severe fatigue, difficulty eating, pain during intercourse, unusual vaginal bleeding,
unexplained weight gain, and much more. If you notice one or more of any of these
symptoms, or any of the symptoms listed in this video, speak to your doctor today to
rule out any health conditions or problems. You should also be sure to eat a nutrient
rich diet and include some sort of exercise regimen into your life while also going for
regular doctor visits to ensure that your health is in good shape. What other early symptoms of ovarian cancer

    I have pain in my right abdomen and I went to my doctor, we did blood tests and two different ultrasound scan tests but there is nothing. With eating, I wouldn’t really know because I’m from South Africa and I am now in China so I have obviously changed my diet because I’m in a foreign land. I have almost all the signs except for going to the bathroom frequently to pee. What can be the problem? Appendicitis is ruled out too.

    Welp this is confusing because I've been bleeding for almost a year straight non stop. I've been bolted and have real bad cramps and it feels like my uterus is tearing and it very tinder. They liver hurts I have diarrhea but I have IBS but sometimes I cant poo and not offend. I only eat once a day because by the time I wake its almost dinner time and I'm over weight depress and I have scoliosis my body is always tried when I walk out the house to the car my legs feel like bricks. I also have muscles spasms that will bring my to my knees and I would cry. My thyroid is low when i take my medication I'm on my period for months and when i stop then 3 months later it will stop completely then I don't have one. I'm very worried because I never been pregnant before and I want to I try talking to my doctor and all I get is judgement face and I don't need that. Plus I have acid reflux disease which makes me not wanna eat anymore so yeah I don't know what to do. Plus I had an ultrasound and I was dilated to a 5 and they don't know why. I'm sick of these because its taking over my life I cant get a job or keep one because I'm in so much pain and I'm always sleeping.

    For a year now I feel cramps almost all the time not just once a month, its always the right side and sometimes so bad it hurts all the way through my lower back and right hip. I gained 30 pounds, lost a lot of hair, despite eating well and drinking nothing but water all day, really bad fatigue. Last pap showed cancer cells but no HPV, now I have a hard, painful lump on lower right abdomen where its always been hurting! Family history of ovarian and uterine cancer, too. Doctor says “Its probably nothing” so I switched doctors today. I have kids to raise, so I take my health seriously!

    I feel uneasy sometimes on my lower abdomen, it seems something is happening on my tummy. I have bowl problem too but not frequent, I feel pee frequently, I have back pain, sometimes I feel pain at the right side of my abdomen. I have visited doctors many times, had a lot of tests, even had ultrasound many times. Once doctors found that size of my left ovary increased, later on they did repeat ultrasound, they found it alright. I’m also worried about it. I took vaccines for Cervical cancer. Every woman should take the vaccine.
