Ovarian cancer symptoms you're likely to miss
Chances are you or someone you know has been touched by cancer. The news of cancer is devstating for a family and community. There is so much uncertainty for the future, and this is certainly true of ovarian cancer. Unfortunately ovarian cancer can often be missed in its early stages, because the symptoms are easy to ignore.
"Many women are diligent about eating right, exercising regularly and getting their annual check-ups, which includes screenings for cervical cancer (Pap test) and breast cancer (mammograms)," Dr. Kelly Manahan, a gynecologic oncologist with Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Southeastern Regional Medical Center, told The Marietta Daily Journal. "But there is one cancer that is silently killing women for which there is no screening, and many women are unaware of the symptoms; ovarian cancer." Fortunately, there is now more research coming out to guide us on the signs to watch out for.
