Gurgaon said, ” While all women are at risk of developing ovarian cancer, it’s important that we should know all the symptoms of it. The early symptoms of ovarian cancer are easy to ignore because they are similar to other common diseases. Initial symptoms include abdominal bloating, pressure and pain, abnormal fullness after meals, increased urination, fatigue, indigestion, pelvic and abdominal pain, heartburn, constipation, Back pain and menstrual irregularity. These symptoms can occur for any reason. They are not necessarily due to ovarian cancer. Many women have some of these problems at one time or another. Such symptoms are often temporary and, in most cases, respond to simple treatment. Those symptoms will remain due to ovarian cancer. Symptoms usually become more severe as tumors grow. By this time, the cancer has usually spread outside the ovaries, making it very difficult to treat effectively. However, knowing the symptoms could of ovarian cancer could speed up your diagnosis.”
