Before writing about some early symptoms of ovarian cancer,let me briefly explain what ovarian cancer is.

 Ovarian cancer is when abnormal cells in the ovary begin to multiply out of control and form a tumour.If left untreated,the tumour can spread to other parts of the body.That's why its always good to pay attention to signs before it spirals out of control.

Ovarian cancer has warning signs although the early symptoms are vague and easy to dismiss.Some early symptoms include

Abdominal bloating,pressure and pain

Abnormal fullness after eating

Difficulty eating

An increase in urination

An increase urge to urinate

Some other symptoms of ovarian cancer include fatigue,indigestion, heartburn,constipation, back pain,menstrual irregularities, painful intercourse,dermatomyositis(a rare inflammatory disease that can cause skin rash,muscle weakness,inflamed muscles).

This symptoms occur for any other number of reasons not necessarily due to ovarian cancer.

Cancers are best treated when detected early..so,its advisable to consult a doctor when you notice an unusual symptom.

3. Cancer related fatigue or loss of appetite
