Dr Oz: Ovarian Cancer Symptoms
Ovarian Cancer Warning Sign #1: Bloating
All of us get bloated from time to time, but if you are bloated on a daily basis, or if you notice you are bloated more often than usual, or if your bloating lasts two to three weeks, these are all signs that you should see your doctor. Bloating is one of the early signs of Ovarian Cancer and should not be overlooked.
Ovarian Cancer Warning Sign #2: Abdominal Pain
Due to the nature of Ovarian Cancer and how it tends to grow, it can often cause Abdominal or Pelvic Pain. If you often feel Pelvic or Abdominal Pain, especially if you notice the pain getting worse or persisting in general rather than getting better, you should consult with your doctor.
Ovarian Cancer Warning Sign #3: Feeling Full Quickly
Do you feel full quickly when you eat or generally find it difficult to eat? This could also be an Ovarian Cancer Warning Sign. In addition, you might notice that you are more constipated and nauseous – or you could even see an increase in how often you vomit.
Ovarian Cancer Warning Sign #4: Frequent Urination
Often times if you go to your doctor and complain about frequent urination, you will get diagnosed with a bladder infection or an UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). However, Ovarian Cancer can also make you pee more often. If you experience frequent urination for a couple of weeks, you should ask your doctor to do a dipstick test to make sure that it is not Ovarian Cancer rather than a bladder infection or a UTI.
