Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

Ovarian cancer occurs when abnormal cells that are not normal grow in one or both ovaries. Ovaries are two almond shaped small glands, located on both sides of the uterus. They produce female hormones, progesterone, oestrogen and testosterone and store and release eggs (ova).

In 2017 ovarian cancer was the eighth most commonly diagnosed cancer in women in Australia. Women with Ovarian cancer have a survival rate of 44.4%

This type of cancer grows in the tissue covering the ovaries. Recent research has indicate that some ovarian cancers begin in the fallopian tubes. It is the most common type of ovarian cancer and usually occurs in women who are past menopause. If found early then treatment has a much higher rate of success.

Experts don’t know exactly what causes ovarian cancer. But they do know that DNA changes play a role in many cancers.

Symptoms of ovarian cancer may include:

Recent, frequent bloating
Pain in the belly or pelvis.
Trouble eating, or feeling full quickly.
Urinary problems, such as an urgent need to urinate or urinating more often than usual

Treatment Options

Treatment of Ovarian cancer usually includes a key hole procedure, a laparatomy via a cut through the wall of the abdomen. Depending on where the cancer is found, the ovaries and one or both fallopian tubes may be removed. If both ovaries are removed this will result in the onset of menopause. Post operative chemotherapy may be carried out to remove any cancer after the laparotomy.

Support for women diagnosed or being treated for ovarian cancer can be found through Ovarian Cancer Australia. Why not get involved in your workplace and put on an event to raise awareness and to start a meaningful conversation with the women in your life about detection and prevention today?
