Tallahaspe, Florida, may have one of the lowest ovarian cancer rates in the country, but it’s far from a silver bullet.
That’s because many women with ovarian cysts don’t have a clear diagnosis and may not know if they have the disease until after surgery.
Here’s what you need to know about ovarian cancer.
1 / 17 Tallahahaspen woman, a cystic ovarian cyst, was given a new diagnosis after doctors discovered the cysts in her ovaries.
Here she is at age 46.
Tallahasset, FL—A cystic ovary (COC) is an abnormal growth in your ovary.
It’s a cyst in your uterus, but is not cancerous.
If you have a COC, you can expect: • A bump in size • Difficulty getting pregnant • Difficulty finding a job • Difficulty managing your diabetes mellitus • Increased risk of pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis and infertility • Increased risks of ovarian cancer and other cancers in later life.
The most common cause of ovarian cystic is ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, which is caused by hormone imbalances.
Symptoms of hyperstimulated ovaries include: • Pain in your lower abdomen • Difficulty with urination • Fever or pain in your face • Pains or cramps in your breasts, thighs, buttocks, groin or back • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating • Difficulty urinating • Tenderness in your breast or buttocks • Heavy bleeding or spotting in your urethra • Nausea or vomiting • Muscle aches or weakness • Difficulty concentrating or talking • Depression or anxiety • Numbness or tingling in your hands or feet.
Symptoms may last for several weeks or months.
Ovarian cysts are usually found on the ovaries, but sometimes they can also appear on the lining of the uterus or elsewhere in your body.
Most women with cysts, however, have a small cyst on their ovaries that does not cause symptoms.
A cyst may appear in one area of your body, but may not cause any symptoms.
Your doctor may also recommend an ultrasound to look for a cytic.
If the cyst does not go away on its own, you may need a cytoplasmic retraction procedure.
If it does, your doctor may remove a cystal, which can be very painful.
You may need to have an MRI or CT scan to look at the cytic or other ovarian cystal.
This can take up to several hours.
If your doctor determines that the cystal is benign, your ovaries may not need to be surgically removed.
Some women who have been diagnosed early in life with ovarian ovarian cytic disease may also be treated with chemotherapy.
But these treatments are not always effective and do not always cure the condition.
1 in 10 women with ovary cancer will have a cysts that do not go under, according to the American Cancer Society.
There are two types of ovarian cancers: basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and ovarian intraepithelial neoplasia (OIC).
These are the most common types of cancer that affect women.
The BCC is an aggressive form of ovarian carcinoma, and it is the most dangerous form of cancer in women.
In some women, the cancer spreads to other parts of their body.
There is no cure for ovarian cancer because there is no way to tell how many cancer cells are present in a woman’s body.
Ovary cancer treatment may be complicated because ovarian cancer often has multiple stages.
The first stage is the growth of the ovarian cystadoid, which usually is a very small cystic.
At this stage, a woman may need surgery to remove the cystadoids and the surrounding tissue.
After surgery, the woman may be treated for several months with different medications to control the growth.
If ovarian cysted, the stage may change to a more aggressive form.
In that stage, the cystic may grow into a large cyst or may spread to other organs or tissues.
The second stage is an ovary tumor that is typically larger and more aggressive.
The tumor usually is small and has been identified in women with cancer at least as advanced as stage one.
The ovarian tumor can cause scarring and inflammation, and is sometimes referred to as ovarian fibroids.
Some ovarian tumors may spread or cause other problems, such as infertility, pelvic pain, and infertility.
About 1 in 100 women with an ovarian cancer diagnosis will have surgery to reduce the size of the tumor, which may be painful or difficult to remove.
Women who are diagnosed early often have fewer complications and have fewer risks.
Ovarians are usually treated for about two years.
There may be some pain or swelling, but the tumor usually will go away after about two to four years
