What Every Woman Should Know About the Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer
The symptoms of ovarian cancer in the early stages are not often acute or intense. In most cases, ovarian cancer isn’t detected during a routine pelvic exam unless the doctor knows that the ovaries are enlarged. Potential symptoms of ovarian cancer can include:
- Pelvic abdominal pain
- Trouble eating or feeling full quickly
- Feeling the need to urinate urgently
- Upset stomach or heartburn
- Back pain
- Pain during sex
Unfortunately, the PAP Test won’t detect ovarian cancer as it is only used to detect cancer of the cervix.
Screening tests can include:
- Pelvic exam
- Transvaginal Sonography
- C1025 Test
If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, it is important that you be treated by a gynecological oncologist. You can find one in your area by going to The Society of Gynecological Oncologist website or call 1.800.444.4441.
