It is estimated that in Australia there will be over 1000 new cases of Ovarian cancer in 2018. Ovarian cancer happens when the cells in one or both of the ovaries become abnormal and change into cancer.
The symptoms of Ovarian cancer can overlap with other less serious health problems. But there are four types of symptoms that occur most frequently: - abdominal or pelvic pain
- persistent bloating
- needing to urinate frequently
- feeling full after eating small amounts
Other symptoms to be aware of are:
- change in bowel habit
- unexplained weight gain or weightloss
- irregular bleeding
- back pain
- pain during intercourse.
Treatment is best managed by a gynaecologist and may include chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
