symptoms of Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is often referred to as the “silent killer” because it tends to present few symptoms in its early stages, and the symptoms it does cause are often vague and easily overlooked. However, as the cancer progresses, symptoms may become more noticeable. Here are some common symptoms of ovarian cancer:

Abdominal or pelvic pain: Persistent or frequent discomfort, cramping, or pain in the abdomen or pelvis, which may be present for several weeks and not related to menstruation, digestion, or other known causes.

Bloating or swelling: Persistent bloating or a feeling of fullness in the abdomen, which may occur with or without eating, and may be accompanied by increased abdominal size or a persistent feeling of abdominal pressure.

Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly: Loss of appetite or feeling full quickly after eating small amounts of food, which may be accompanied by nausea, indigestion, or changes in bowel habits.

Urinary symptoms: Increased frequency or urgency of urination, or difficulty emptying the bladder completely, which may occur due to pressure on the bladder from an ovarian tumor.

Changes in bowel habits: Constipation, diarrhea, or other changes in bowel habits that persist for more than a few weeks and are not explained by dietary changes or other factors.

Unexplained weight loss: Significant and unexplained weight loss, even if you haven’t changed your diet or exercise routine, can be a symptom of ovarian cancer.

Fatigue: Persistent fatigue, weakness, or lack of energy that does not improve with rest and is not related to other known causes.

Back pain: Pain in the lower back, especially on one side, that does not improve with rest or changes in position.

It’s important to note that these symptoms can also be caused by other conditions, and having one or more of these symptoms does not necessarily mean you have ovarian cancer. However, if you experience persistent or worsening symptoms, especially if they are new or unusual for you, it’s essential to see a healthcare professional for evaluation and diagnosis. Early detection and treatment of ovarian cancer can significantly improve outcomes. If you have risk factors for ovarian cancer, such as a family history of the disease or certain genetic mutations, you may need to undergo screening tests recommended by your healthcare provider.
