ovarian cancer

Took students to two wonderful presentations today.

First one was ovarian cancer survivors. I learned a lot.

Main symptom is persistent bloating. There may be abdominal pain which radiates to back and/or hip. There may be no symptoms.

Physicians do not routinely screen for ovarian cancer.

If you know a woman who reports persistent bloating, abdominal pain, and fatigue; please urge her to see a gynecological oncologist. You may save a life. Thank you.
