Be Alert to the Signs of Ovarian Cancer
Millions of women have used talcum powder for years, not having the slightest idea that doing so could substantially increase their risk for developing ovarian cancer. If you use this product, you need to closely watch for signs you may have the disease.
An Insidious Disease
Ovarian cancer is a stealthy disease that kills approximately 14,500 women in the U.S. each year. Signs are typically not apparent in its early stages, and there is no screening test for the disease.
The best way to find out if you have ovarian cancer is through your annual pelvic examination as well as practicing routine gynecologic care. However, there are some signs that might indicate the presence of the disease. Common symptoms include:
- Abdominal bloating, nausea or indigestion on a regular basis
- Appetite changes
- Bowel movement changes
- Constant fatigue
- More frequent urination than normal
- Pressure in the lower back or pelvis
It is very important to note that these symptoms could also be caused by something else other than ovarian cancer. But if you experience them, you need to pay attention and talk to your doctor as soon as possible – especially if the symptoms persist for several weeks. Schedule a thorough examination so that your doctor can consider all possible causes.
