Ovarian cancer. There aren’t any early symptoms really, it is usually that the disease causes little discomfort at first. With ovarian cancer cells grow uncontrollably in the ovary and form malignant tumors that destroy the surrounding tissue. According to information from Ovarian Cancer Australia each year 1,200 women get ovarian cancer and, according to the Association of Gynecological Oncology at the German Cancer Society in Germany each year around 8,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
Abdominal or pelvis pain. Nausea. Frequent fatigue / exhaustion. Bleeding between periods. Abdominal bloating and weight loss. Frequent urination.
The not-for-profit organisation, Ovarian Cancer Australia (as the name suggests, acquisition of gain is not at the forefront of calls) invites all to send women a virtual kiss for Valentine's Day via Facebook. With this social commitment they call for ovarian cancer awareness and encourage women to pay attention to the early signs of ovarian cancer. Excellent idea.
All other readers I wish to remain healthy.
Cheers from Melbourne!
