As many of you may (or may not) know, Ovarian Cancer is an issue that has deeply affected my family along with countless other women and families around the world. It is an awful disease that has been coined “the silent killer” due to the fact that there are hardly any symptoms of the disease until it has already progressed and metastasized.
The few symptoms are:
- Abdominal pain, bloating or swelling
- Quickly feeling full when eating
- Weight loss
- Discomfort in the pelvis area
- Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation
- A frequent need to urinate
These symptoms are hardly anything that out of the normal. I am pretty sure most women have experienced more than 1 of these symptoms at many times throughout their lives. The symptoms are so subtle and so easily overlooked. This is so why it is so important to share this information with as many people as possible and to spread awareness about this horrible disease.
Knowledge truly is power.
