Topic: Ovarian Cancer
As the leaves change colors and your calendar fills up with school events, fall sports and family activities, remember, women: it’s critical to care for yourself, too. A minor discomfort can be a sign of something serious. Ovarian Cancer is called the silent killer because early symptoms are often mistaken for common gastrointestinal problems. If you’re experiencing indigestion, abdominal or pelvic pain, bloating, frequent urination, trouble eating or feeling full quickly, don’t wait: talk to your doctor or visit a Main Line Health doctor. It may be nothing serious but don’t take that chance. Outcomes are more successful when cancer is found early and managed quickly.
