Ovarian cancer is a common disease in women, only after breast cancer and cervical cancer.
According to Dr. Than Van Thinh, Hanoi Cancer Hospital(Vietnam) said that the first stage of the disease has developed quite quietly. More than 70% of patients detected at a late stage. While the disease is detected early, the survival rate after 5 years in stage 1 is over 70%.
Saying so does not mean that ovarian cancer will come unexpectedly but it already has warning signs, you should know to prevent it.

In addition, women often suffer from lower abdominal pain or a feeling of abdominal distension due to the appearance of fluid and tumors that develop in the abdomen. The tumor enlarged and pressed into the gastrointestinal tract, causing nausea, fasting, constipation and possible intestinal obstruction.
Frequent back pain: Lower abdominal pain may be caused by cervical contraction. But if this pain occurs while you’re not having periods, it may be a sign of ovarian cancer.
Continuous urination: The phenomenon of urination disorder can be caused by many factors and can be caused by a variety of conditions, including bladder, urinary tract problems, high blood sugar symptoms but also ovarian disease symptoms.
