September’s Tip from Dr. Polko

ovarian cancer
September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

There are no proven screening tests for early detection of ovarian cancer, but there are some things that you can do to try and detect it early.

You should watch for signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer:

  • Bloating
  • Pain in the pelvis or belly
  • Trouble eating or feeling full
  • Urinary urgency of frequency

These signs and symptoms can also be from other causes. You need to see your doctor if you have these symptoms daily for more than a few weeks.

If you have a family member who had ovarian cancer or breast cancer, you are at a higher risk for it. Your doctor may do additional testing on you if they feel you should have additional screenings.

You should always have yearly gynecological screenings with your doctor to be examined. Call 301-997-1788 today if you are overdue for your yearly exam.


Every part of my pregnancy, labor, and delivery experience here was good! I would recommend this practice/midwives to anyone.
