Ovarian Cancer

What Is Ovarian Cancer ?

Ovaries are small almond shaped organs located on each side of the uterus. They are responsible for the production of eggs (Ova) and the hormones oestrogen and progesterone.
Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries and often goes undetected until it has spread within the pelvis and abdomen which makes it difficult to treat. Early-stage ovarian cancer, in which the disease is confined to the ovary, can be treated successfully

Ovarian cancer may cause few and nonspecific symptoms that are often mistaken for more common benign conditions.

Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:

Bloating in the abdomen or swelling
Quickly feeling full when eating
Weight loss
Discomfort in the pelvis area
Changes in bowel habits
Frequent urination
