DON'T IGNORE THE PAIN: ABDOMINAL OR PELVIC



                    "I had pain in what seemed like my stomach area."
          "The pain was in the lower corner of my abdomen and radiated around to my back."

                                            "My lower back hurt without relief."

                      "I thought the abdominal pain was just related to my menstrual cycle."

               "I take Aleve, (Advil, Tylenol or Aspirin) and the pain never really goes away."





The message is clear and simple: 

       IF THE PAIN PERSISTS LONGER THAN 2 WEEKS, SEE YOUR PHYSICIAN.

                           THIS COULD BE A SYMPTOM OF OVARIAN CANCER.

  1. Don't forget urinary frequency is a symptom, too.

    Thanks,

    1. Yes, and there are other symptoms which I will highlight at different times. In the past I have written about them as a group or sometimes individually. The subtlety of the symptoms requires me to write about them again and again.

      Your comment is most welcome. God bless and thank you for sharing your thoughts and wisdom.

    3. Any help in spreading the woe about ovarian cancer symptoms and risk factors is appreciated. This disease does not discriminate. The youngest case I know of is an 8 year old child...yes, a little girl!
      Thank you for your comment.
