February is Ovarian Cancer awareness month

Ovarian cancer is a disease where some of the cells in one or both ovaries start to grow abnormally and develop into cancer. There is no early detection test for ovarian cancer, so all women need to be aware of the symptoms which can be vague and often difficult to diagnosis.  Ovarian cancer symptoms may include: Pelvic or abdominal pain, discomfort or bloating, changes in your eating habits, getting full early and losing your appetite, vaginal discharge or abnormal bleeding, especially if the bleeding occurs outside of your typical menstrual cycle or after you’ve gone through menopause. Ovarian cancer ranks 5th in cancer deaths among women and causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.
