Every year, around 240,000 women all around the world were detected with malignant growth of abnormal cells in the ovaries, and over 150,000 lives end. About 22,000 Americans are diagnosed yearly with malignant growth of abnormal cells in the ovaries. Heredity, old age, reproductive history and being overweight are some factors that may contribute in developing this malignancy. There is a 94% chance of surviving if it is detected and treated during early stages.
This illness mainly starts in the ovaries. In the female human body, there are two ovaries located beside the uterus in the reproductive system. Normal ovaries are about the size of an almond which produces hormones such as progesterone and estrogen, and egg or the ova.
It is usually undetected during the early stages until it spread out through the pelvis and abdomen. It will become harder to treat and gives a higher percentage of mortality during the late stages. Successful treatment of malignant growth of abnormal cells in the ovaries usually happens when it is detected in early stage.
Having malignant growth of abnormal cells in the ovaries is hard to be diagnosed at an early stage because it rarely causes symptoms. Symptoms may appear or can be experienced if the malignant growth of abnormal cells in the ovaries is already in the late stage. Usually these symptoms are confused with other illnesses until a doctor diagnoses the real illness. These are some symptoms that should be taken in consideration: abdominal bloating or swelling, quickly feeling full when eating, weight decrease, discomfort in the pelvis area, changes in bowel habits such as constipation, and a frequent need to urinate.
Currently, there are still no certain ways to prevent this illness, but there are ways to lower the risk of having malignant growth of abnormal cells in the ovaries. Taking birth control pills discussed with your doctor can help in lowering the risk. Moreover, consulting to your doctor and discussing how to lower the risk of having it is the best way for you to know what to do.
