The Day That Changed My Life - Ovarian Cancer

Consider this.......

When someone is diagnosed with cancer there are some things that they immediately think of:
*Relationships (spouse,Fiancée,boyfriend,partner,girlfriend)
*Lifestyle (health, hair, career/work, social)

Elana Waldman is facing ovarian cancer - again. Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries and is difficult to detect/diagnose as the symptoms are linked to other non life threatening health related illnesses:

*Abnormal menstrual cycle
*No appetite
*Nausea or vomiting
*Increased gas
*Heaviness in Pelvic area
*Swollen abdomen or belly
*Vaginal bleeding
*Discomfort in abdominal area
*Weight gain or weight loss
*Pain in the back that appears without reason while pain increases
*Increased/Urgent need to urinate
*Excessive hair growth
*Feeling full quickly
*Difficulty eating

If you experience any of these symptoms for more than a few weeks, put your doctor on alert. Let your concerns be heard early detection may save your life. In most cases, by the time ovarian cancer is diagnosed, it may be very difficult to treat successfully. How can you make a difference? Take a moment...
