The American Cancer Society estimates about 21,410 individuals will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Early Detection is important as there is no reliable screening or diagnostic test for ovarian cancer.

But symptoms can be easily missed. That is why it is important to know the symptoms, note when such symptoms develop and contact your doctor if they continue for two weeks. Visit your OBGYN regularly to maintain reproductive health and for consultations regarding any issues you may be experiencing.
