Ovarian Cancer- Early

Print This Post Print This Post

More than 20,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year in the U.S. Almost 80% of these will already have spread by the time they are diagnosed. Current early detection methods are a blood test called a CA125 and an intra-vaginal ultrasound. In several retrospective studies recently they determined that early detection was possible if the physicians asked the following questions to all women under going their annual pap smears.

1. Are you experiencing any pelvic pain?
2. Have you had any abdominal pain for more than 12 days per month?
3. Have you noticed any increase in the size of your abdomen?
4. Have you noticed more abdominal bloating lately?
5. Do you experience a rapid feeling of fullness when eating?
6. Have you had any difficulty in eating?

While these symptoms may sound vague they may be life saving if you bring them to the attention of your Doctor.
