Ovarian cancer is a rare cancer afflicting women which is hard to diagnose in the first phase. It has been found that women who have never been pregnant or are menopausal are at greater risk of this cancer.

While the cause of this is yet to be found, but when diagnosed early it can be treated successfully. However early symptoms are often hard to catch.

But most often they start suddenly, and are different than your menstrual cycle, and the problems don’t seem to go away despite medication. Here are few points to look out for:

1. Recent, frequent bloating of your stomach without explanation.

2. Pain in your pelvic area.

3. Loss of appetite or feeling full quickly

4. Unexplained weight loss.

5. Frequent urge to urinate.

6. Severe indigestion almost daily

7. Menstrual cycle change.

8. Constipation

9. Back pain

10. Pain during intercourse.
