There’s a cancer known as the “silent killer” because symptoms are often so subtle; they just seem like routine or common annoyances. That cancer is ovarian cancer.  The difference between the routine annoyances and those of ovarian cancer is that they will continue most days and not go away. And by the time the symptoms begin to be considered an issue; the cancer has frequently spread and it’s progression is substantial and very difficult to treat.

However, there are some early signs or warning signals that can help you in making an assessment.  Remember though that these signs must be looked at in combination with each other and with the assistance of trained medical personnel if you notice a pattern.
