The symptoms of ovarian cancer in women can be difficult to detect. Many people can put up more signs. In the UK alone each year 7,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

If the cancer is detected early, treatment can be more effective, people with higher risk of developing ovarian cancer are over the age of 30 +, and postmenopausal women.

It is important that women know that a cervixPap tests do not take in ovarian cancer, Pap tests, usually just looking for abnormal cells that may be a sign of cervical cancer.

Signs that you may have ovarian cancer are;

- Constant pain in abdomen, cramps
- Swelling of the stomach (and not just after eating)
- Loss of appetite
- Frequent urination or difficulty urinating
- Bowel problems like diarrhea or constipation
- Back pain or neck

As I said before these symptoms can be confused with something else. Some women may feel abdominal pain before your period, with a bloated feeling.

Because the symptoms of ovarian cancer in women can be like normal everyday problems mostly because of this delay is often the cancer can spread. This makes treatment more intensive and the success rate can belower than that if the cancer was diagnosed earlier.

This cancer can sometimes be hereditary, if 2 or more members of your family have previously suffered with breast or ovarian cancer you should let your doctor know.

Some younger women often ignore the symptoms mentioned above, this may be because they feel that the cancer is a problem that only affects the older woman. It may be because they have no idea that the symptoms they are experiencing are like those for ovarian cancer.

If you are noticing any of the above symptoms on a daily basis, I urge you to seek advice from your doctor or other health professional. It may be nothing to worry about, but it is better to be safe than sorry.

It is not a very common form of cancer, more common forms are breast, cervical cancer in women or testicular cancer in men.

If you think you may be suffering with any of these symptoms then you should speak with your doctor as soon as possible, I urge you to do this for any symptoms, not just the ones I have mentioned above. If you have already spoken with your doctor, and your symptoms are getting worse, go back and ask your doctor for more accurate tests.

As the symptoms of ovarian cancer in women are similar to those you would get with a period, you may feel like it is not important enough to warrant a trip to the doctor, this can be detrimental to your health. Early detection of the cancer may save lives! If you or someone you know is having any of these problems please get it checked out.
