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.

4. Excessive Fatigue

Warning signs of ovarian cancer

Along with breathlessness, nausea, and an increased loss of appetite, extreme fatigue is one of the symptoms that a patient at a progressed stage of ovarian cancer may see.

More than 80% of women do experience at least one symptom of ovarian cancer a few months before getting diagnosed, according to Medical News Today.

That’s why it’s so important to study your own body. Don’t wait for more than three months after experiencing an odd symptom to get checked out, like 17% of women do.
