Signs Symptoms Cervical Cancer | Ovarian Cancer Symptoms

The symptoms of ovarian cancer into account especially when growing for some time and the mass becomes large enough cancer. Some women, however, may experience symptoms such as pelvic pain, even in the early stages. Because the symptoms are vague and often are similar to those of common benign conditions, victims tend to ignore them.

Detection of ovarian cancer is difficult in its early stages, because the two small organs are almond shaped deep within the abdominal cavity, one on each side of the uterus.

Among the common early symptoms are bloating, pressure, pain or discomfort caused by the accumulation of fluid or masses within the abdominal cavity. Fluid also may accumulate around the lungs, causing breathing problems, if the cancer spreads to the diaphragm.

Because of the pressure in the stomach, you can also lose your appetite or experience a feeling of fullness, even after a very light meal. When the tumor begins to exert pressure on the bowel or bladder, the victim may experience nausea, vomiting, gas, diarrhea, constipation or frequent urination. Some other symptoms, although not as common are fever, vaginal bleeding and lower back pain. You can also experience unexplained weight gain or loss, abnormal fatigue or changes in bowel habits. If symptoms persist despite the normal procedures for change of diet, exercise, or use of laxatives, the patient should not delay in consulting a doctor.
