Heed Early Warning Signs of Ovarian Cancer

Since I've been spotlighting ovarian cancer this month, I thought I'd share a little news item I found from the American Cancer Society called Heed Early Warning Signs of Ovarian Cancer. Ovarian cancer is hard to diagnose because many times there are no symptoms or the symptoms, such as bloating and pelvic or abdominal pain, are common to other less serious problems. Sadly, only 20% of ovarian cancers are diagnosed at an early stage when it is easier to treat.

Besides the information from the American Cancer Society, be sure to check out the MedlinePlus health topic on Ovarian Cancer for links to information on all aspects of ovarian cancer.
