September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.
Ovarian Cancer is one of the most deadly of women's cancers. Each year, over 20,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Every year, over 14,000 women will die in our country from this disease. This cancer typically occurs in women in their fifties and sixties. Unfortunately many women don't seek help until the disease has begun to spread. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are often subtle and easily confused with other ailments. These symptoms most often include bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, feeling full quickly, urinary urgency or frequency. Women with a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer may be at increased risk. To learn more, please visit About Ovarian Cancer.
