Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is a cancer that begins in the ovaries, or reproductive organs, in the body. Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths in women. Over the last 20 years the occurrence of ovarian cancer in the U.S. has declined. Researchers feel that the increased use of oral contraceptives may contribute to this decline.

Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer

Because early symptoms of ovarian cancer are similar to other common health problems, it often goes undiagnosed. Please consult your healthcare provider if you have an ongoing experience with one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Bloating
  • Pelvic or abdominal pain
  • Urinary tract problems
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Changes in menstrual cycle
