Warning Signs Of Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is a form of cancer where a malignancy forms in one of the ovaries. A malignancy can begin in the germ, stromal, or epithelial cells within the ovaries. Stromal cells make the structure of each ovary, germ cells evolve into egg cells, and epithelial cells make up the outer layer of the ovaries. Ovarian cancer is caused by an acquired or spontaneous genetic mutation that results in cells growing and multiplying beyond control. Genetic factors make some individuals more susceptible to ovarian cancer development than others. Diagnosis is made with blood tests, computerized tomography scans, positron emission tomography scans, magnetic resonance imaging, and a biopsy. 

Patients need prompt treatment for ovarian cancer. They will often have surgery for ovarian cancer. Chemotherapy for ovarian cancer is a common option, particularly in combination with surgery. There are no natural remedies for ovarian cancer beyond options to help manage symptoms and treatment side effects. This may include aromatherapy and following a healthy diet. Overall, the best treatment for ovarian cancer varies from patient to patient and what they decide on with their doctors. Of course, all patients benefit from understanding the symptoms of ovarian cancer first.

Ovarian cancer patients have malignant cells that are rapidly growing and dividing in their lower abdomen. When cancerous cells start taking up space the intestines and other abdominal organs would be occupying, individuals will deal with symptoms linked to abdominal organ compression. An individual who feels full fast will lose their appetite after eating only a few bites of food. The stomach and intestines expand to accommodate the food consumed before it is digested. 

The abdominal organs and tissues surrounding the intestines and stomach are all contained within the abdominal fascia or compartment. The abdominal fascia can expand to a certain degree in cases where tumors and food take up a significant amount of space. However, a limit to how much expansion can happen does exist. When this threshold is exceeded, the affected individual will feel discomfort when they put anything else into their digestive tract.
