Warning signs of ovarian cancer

Statistically, more women over the age of 55 are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. However, you don’t need to be post-menopausal in order to develop ovarian cancer.

According to Healthline, gynecological cancers can occur in younger women, too — even in those who haven’t had their first periods yet.

If you are experiencing abnormal vaginal bleeding, or a drastic change in your menstrual cycle, it’s best to let your doctor know so that further tests can be done.
