When the cancer in the ovary is detected early, then the chances for victorious treatment and the survival are possible. But in general the symptoms are very silent in the case of ovarian cancer and thus the ovarian cancer posses the habit of being subtle or do not highlight themselves till it progress to the advanced stage. The research study indicates that there are some general symptoms that may occur for the ovarian cancer. The women are expected to be familiar with the symptoms of the ovarian cancer and should go to the doctor when they come across any such symptom. It is also advisable for all the women beyond the age of 18 to undergo the pelvic exams annually.
The very common symptoms that may occur for the woman who has the ovarian cancer are the indigestion, change in the bowel movement and nausea. Pelvic pain may or may not be experienced by the women who have ovarian cancer. Some of the other symptoms that are associated with the ovarian cancer are the pain in the pelvic or abdomen, pressure, discomfort, swelling, gastrointestinal upsets like nausea, indigestion or gas, urgent urination, abnormal wait loss or gain and in particular wait gain in the region of abdomen, swelling in abdomen, pain during the intercourse, pain in the legs and bleeding in the vagina unusually.
A recent study in a journal also indicated that some of the symptoms are very common among the women who were affected with the ovarian cancer. The survey was conducted with the women with the ovarian cancer and without the ovarian cancer. The solution was that the women with the ovarian cancer had many problems in common and experience the same for more than 12 times a month. The common symptoms that are taken for the research study are the pain in the pelvic or the abdomen, bloating of abdomen, urgent urinary, frequency of urination, feeling heavy after little consumption and finding difficult to eat.
It is advised for those women with the above symptoms to consult the physician immediately who will perform various tests to know the severity and the nature of the cancer in the ovary. It is also suggested to meet the gynecologists preferably on daily basis for some weeks to have a complete study of the ovarian cancer.
These symptoms which are silent may sometimes highlight the ovarian cancer and its severity. One should be aware that the ovarian cancer in the early stage cannot be known by the affected person as she will not be getting any symptom for the same. She will be experiencing the discomfort or swelling in the lower abdomen as when the cancer grows in the ovary. As many symptoms will not occur till the cancer spread throughout the ovary, it will be ignored.
