September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. According to the National Women’s Health Network (NWHN),
“Ovarian cancer accounts for more deaths each year than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. In 2013 alone, there were an estimated 22,000 cases of ovarian cancer resulting in about 14,000 deaths. These shocking statistics make it clear that ovarian cancer awareness is of utmost importance.”

Ovarian cancer is known as the silent killer and for good reason.
The main symptoms of ovarian cancer are often overlooked or misdiagnosed by the best medical professionals every day. Usually, in the early stages, it’s undetectable to the patient, not presenting with any discomfort or alarming symptoms. It’s when the cancer has spread that something is wrong becomes prevalent. Symptoms like bloating, abdominal discomfort, loss of appetite, feeling full quickly, changes in bowel habits, often get misdiagnosed or brushed off as something else. In its later stages, it can present with weight loss, fatigue, back pain, frequent trips to the bathroom and irritable bowel syndrome.
As with any time you feel there is something wrong, early detection is tantamount to higher survival rates. The best course of action is to know your body and listen to your body. Go to your doctor, and if they will not listen, find one who will.
For more information and resources go to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition at ovarian.org to find a local chapter, make connections and educate yourself and others.
