Ovarian Cancer Is Treatable If Found Early
Ovarian cancer strikes more than 22,000 women in the U.S. each year and is responsible for more than 14,000 deaths. This insidious disease strikes middle aged and older women more frequently than younger women. However, it’s important to understand that all women are at risk for ovarian cancer.
Ovarian cancer is treatable if caught early. Women should pay attention to signs and symptoms including:
- Unusual vaginal bleeding
- Persistent pain in abdomen and/or pelvis
- Abdominal bloating and/or gas
- Changes in bowel or bladder habits
