Did you know?
Most ovarian cancers occur in women 50 years of age or older, with the highest risk in women older than 60.
One woman out of every 71 will develop ovarian cancer at some point in her lifetime.
A family history of breast or colon cancer also is associated with an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.
The ovarian cancer symptoms and signs can be vague but may include abdominal swelling, pelvic pressure, stomach pain, frequent urination or urinary urgency, and feeling full quickly.
