Ovarian cancer is one of the scariest health problems women face today. This is mainly due to the fact that the symptoms often go unnoticed and untreated. The symptoms can be very non specific and can easily be overlooked or ignored because you think "it's not that bad" or "it will be better soon". Here's a list of some common symptoms most people wont recognize...
1. Fatigue haunts you.
If you find activities that you used to be able to do becoming harder, and feeling the need to sit down and rest more often than usual, it could be a sign of ovarian cancer. Also becoming fatigued by common tasks like dusting or vacuuming, and becoming dizzy or dazed with no explanation could be possible warning signs.
2. Your favorite jeans don't fit anymore.
Needing a new pair of pants might be a bigger problem than you think. If you are constantly finding that the jeans that used to fit perfectly are becoming inexplicably tighter it could be a sign of ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer causes a tight and bloated feeling in the abdomen causing your pants to feel tighter.
3. Back pain that wont leave you alone.
Unexplained or prolonged pain in your lower back can also be a warning sign of ovarian cancer. If you don't have a history of back pain and you find that simple movement causes pain or discomfort, or you've had severe pain for over a week, it could be more serious than you think. Take further action if the pain continues or worsens.
