11 Signs of Ovarian Cancer You Should Absolutely Never Ignore


1Ovarian Cancer Warning Signs

Dubbed by many as “The Silent Killer”, ovarian cancer remains to be rare, but it can be incredibly difficult to detect early on. Unlike Breast cancer, uterine cancer and cervical cancers, ovarian cancer does not yet have a screening that allows us to detect it early. To make matters worse, not many fully know what signs of ovarian cancer are. This results in only 20% of all cases of ovarian cancer actually being diagnosed before they become more advanced.

While that statistic is disturbingly low, for those who are able to find ovarian cancer early on, the treatment works a lot better. Over 94 percent of women who had their ovarian cancer diagnosed in the early stages will live five years or more.

According to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, for every 100 women who report similar symptoms to that of ovarian cancer, only one will actually have early-stage ovarian cancer. It’s a double edged sword of where the cancer needs to be caught early, but the technology for detecting it is far behind and the symptoms are very broad. We always suggest talking with a doctor and carefully examining the evidence. No one can afford constant doctor visits, but you also don’t want to take any unnecessary risks.

Below is a list of 11 signs that may suggest ovarian cancer. Of course, these signs can be caused by many other factors, so you should never jump to conclusions too early, but you also shouldn’t ignore them either. If you have many of these symptoms then you should most certainly contact your doctor
