September’s Tip from Dr. Polko

cervical cancer

September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian Cancer is one of the most detrimental of women’s cancers. Each year, approximately 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. This cancer typically occurs in women in their fifties and sixties with the average age of 63. Many women who are diagnosed with ovarian cancer have a genetic history that may include carrying the BRCA mutation gene and having a strong family history of ovarian cancer.

Unfortunately many women don’t seek help until the disease has begun to spread, but if detected at its earliest stage, the five-year survival rate is more than 93%. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are often subtle and easily confused with other ailments.

Symptoms include but are not limited to:

• Frequent bloating.

• Pain in your belly or pelvis.

• Trouble eating, or feeling full quickly.

• Urinary problems, such as an urgent need to urinate or urinating more often than usual.

• Fatigue.

• Indigestion.

• Back pain.

• Pain with intercourse.

• Constipation.

• Menstrual cycle changes.

If you have a sudden onset of these symptoms, or if they occur almost every day and do not go away you may need to consider being evaluated by a licensed medical professional. If you are concerned about your risks for Ovarian Cancer, please feel free to make an appointment with a licensed medical professional here at Southern Maryland Women’s Healthcare, to talk about potential screening options.
