How to tell whether symptoms are ovarian cancer
Ovarian cancer symptoms are not quite easy to spot. They can just about all be related to other much less serious conditions, particularly the symptoms for ovarian cancer that is less advanced.
There is a serious chance that symptoms are caused by cancer are quite strong, and don’t come and go. If you think you have any of the symptoms below during the past 3 weeks or more, especially you are over 50 or have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer, do go to your GP and get a check up.
Remember these symptoms could be the sign of other illnesses not only cancer. Most women with symptoms like these will not have cancer.
Symptoms of very early ovarian cancer
The stage of a cancer describes how far it has grown and spread. Very early stage cancer means cancer that is completely inside the ovary and is also called stage 1.
Many women with a very early stage of ovarian cancer often don’t have any symptoms at all. The symptoms may be very vague but can include:
- This type of cancer could be very painful, especially in its second stage.
- Irregular periods or vaginal bleeding after menopause could be the cause of a bleeding ulcer in your ovaries.
