What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What Is Ovarian Cancer?

Fighting cancer begins with being armed with essential information about the disease.

Ovarian cancer is the uncontrollable growth of malignant tumors in the egg-producing ovaries, which are two almond-sized glands on each side of a woman’s uterus. Carcinoma of the ovaries is the fifth most common cause of cancer deaths in women and the tenth most widespread cancer among women in the United States. Further, among the gynecologic cancers—those affecting the uterus, cervix, and ovaries—ovarian cancer death rates are the highest.

Without proper treatment, ovarian cancer can cause bowel and bladder obstructions, pleural effusions, and several other life-threatening symptoms.

Ovarian Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The primary types of ovarian cancer include:

Epithelial Tumors

This disease accounts for about 90 percent of ovarian cancers. It begins in the thin layer of tissue covering the outside of the ovaries.

Stromal Tumors

Roughly 7 percent of ovarian tumors are stromal, which develop in the ovarian tissue that contains hormone-producing cells.

Germ Cell Tumors

These rare ovarian cancers often occur in younger women and begin in the egg-producing cells.

Primary Peritoneal

This rare form of ovarian cancer has cells similar to the outside of the ovaries, but it arises in the lining of the pelvis and abdomen.

Ovarian Cancer Symptoms

Signs of ovarian cancer vary from woman to woman, which may include:

  • Abdominal discomfort or pain
  • Bloating or a feeling of fullness, even after a light meal
  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge
  • Frequent urination
  • Unintended weight loss or gain
  • Nausea, diarrhea, and constipation
  • Indigestion and heartburn
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Back pain
  • Painful intercourse
  • Menstrual irregularities

These symptoms do not always mean a woman has ovarian cancer. However, it is best to consult a medical professional if any new symptoms persist few weeks or occur more than 12 times a month.

Ovarian Cancer Causes and Risk Factors

The exact cause of ovarian cancer remains undiscovered, though doctors have identified factors that may increase the risk of the disease. These include:

  • Older age. About half of ovarian cancers occur in women over 60.
  • Genetics. 10 to 15 percent of ovarian cancers are due to hereditary genetic factors that increase the risk of cancer development.
  • Not having children. The more children a woman has naturally, the less likely she is to develop ovarian cancer.
  • Estrogen hormone replacement therapy. Long-term use of treatments that augment the body's natural hormone levels may cause ovarian cancer.

It is important to note that not all women with risk factors will develop ovarian cancer, and not all women without risk factors cannot develop the disease.

Ovarian Cancer Diagnosis

Early detection is key to improving your ovarian cancer prognosis and life expectancy. Screening often begins with your doctor asking a series of questions about your health, symptoms, and family medical history. In the suspicion of a tumorous growth, one or more of the following tests for ovarian cancer may determine if you have the disease and if it has spread:

  • Genetic testing
  • Blood test
  • Pelvic exam
  • Chest x-rays
  • Biopsy
  • Computed axial tomography (CT or CAT) scans
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans
  • Positron emission tomography(PET) scans
  • Transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS)
