Do you know the symptoms of ovarian cancer?

Did you know that 1 woman dies every 8 hours from Ovarian Cancer, and 1 in 10 Australians knows someone who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer!?
February marks Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month which aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, to highlight the risk factors for ovarian cancer and educate Australians on ovarian cancer diagnosis and treatment.
 
The symptoms of ovarian cancer can often be described as vague, especially in the early stages of the disease. Majority of women who experience one or two of the listed early symptoms do not have cancer. However, it is important that you seek medical advice if the symptoms are unusual or persist.
 
Know the symptoms for early detection of ovarian cancer:
 
There is no early detection test for ovarian cancer, so all women need to be aware of the symptoms.
The most commonly reported symptoms for ovarian cancer are:
 
• Increased abdominal size or persistent abdominal bloating
• Abdominal or pelvic (lower tummy) pain
• Feeling full after eating a small amount
• Needing to urinate often or urgently.
 
Additional Symptoms:
• Changes in bowel habits
• Unexplained weight gain or loss
• Excessive fatigue
• Lower back pain
• Indigestion or nausea
• Bleeding after menopause or in-between periods
• Pain during sex or bleeding after.
 
You know your body better than anyone else, so always listen to what your body is saying and trust your instincts. Please see your GP if you have any queries or concerns.
