I apologize for the foot shot. (yikes!)
Why raise awareness?
- Too many women with ovarian cancer do not get diagnosed until their cancer has spread. Their survival rate is 45%.
- The survival rate improves greatly - to 93 percent - if the cancer is diagnosed at an early stage before it has spread. Only 19 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at this local stage.
- Approximately 75 percent of ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage after the cancer has spread beyond the ovary.
The symptoms of Ovarian Cancer are:
Bloating that is persistent
Eating less and feeling fuller
Trouble with your bladder
Anyone having these symptoms daily for more than a few weeks should see their gynecologist.
