Other Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer can include:

  • Feeling very tired all the time
  • Upset stomach or heartburn
  • Back pain
  • Pain during sex
  • Constipation
  • Unusual vaginal bleeding

These symptoms are common for some women, and may not mean there’s ovarian cancer. If, however, these symptoms are new and persist daily for more than two or three weeks, a woman should ask her physician about ovarian cancer. If there is suspicion of the disease, she should be referred to a gynecologic oncologist before undergoing surgery.

What are some of the risk factors linked to Ovarian Cancer?

While the presence of one or more risk factors may increase a woman’s chance of getting ovarian cancer, it does not necessarily mean that she will develop the disease. Risk factors include:

  • Genetic predisposition
  • Personal or family history of breast, ovarian, colon, or rectum cancer
  • Increasing age. The disease affects all ages, but most women are 55+ when diagnosed
  • Never pregnant
  • Long-term use of hormone replacement therapy
  • Obesity
