Ovarian Cancer Whispers – so listen carefully . . .

April 13, 2010

Watch out for tell tale signs

Watch for Pelvic or abdominal pain or discomfort;    
·       vague but  persistent gastrointestinal 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 
·       pelvic and/or abdominal swelling, bloating and/or feeling  of fullness; 
·       ongoing unusual fatigue; 
·       unexplained changes in bowel habits. 
  
If symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, ask your doctor for a combination pelvic/rectal exam, 
CA-125 blood test, and trans-vaginal ultrasound. 
  

A Pap Test WILL NOT detect ovarian cancer.
