Ovarian cancer was once thought to cause no symptoms. However, recent studies have shown that women withovarian cancer are more likely to have the following symptoms or signs, even if the cancer is in an early stage. Sometimes, women with ovarian cancer do not show any of these symptoms. Or, these symptoms may be caused by a medical condition that is not cancer.
For many women with ovarian cancer, these symptoms occur often and are different from what is normal for their bodies. Women who have these symptoms almost daily for more than a few weeks should see either a primary care physician or a gynecologist. Early medical evaluation may help detect the cancer at the earliest possible stage of the disease when it is easier to treat. For more about ovarian cancer visit www.cancer.net.
