Common Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer

shutterstock_327528620

Among the many devastating forms of cancer women can endure, ovarian cancer is one of the most prevalent. According to the American Cancer Society, over 20,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year with nearly 50 percent of those affecting women over the age of 63. Ovarian cancer can be difficult to detect and it’s often easy to overlook symptoms simply because they may seem inconsequential or routine. But it is still possible to detect ovarian cancer with time provided a patient visits a gynecologist regularly. While many things can cause ovarian cancer, a common culprit is linked to the use of talcum powder. Some talc can contain asbestos and according to a study by the National Institute of Health, regular use of talcum powder can result in an increased risk of ovarian cancer.

Common symptoms of ovarian cancer include:

·      Pelvic Pain

·      Abdominal Pain

·      Sudden Weight-loss

·      Trouble Eating

·      Constipation

·      Digestion issues

·      Constant Urination

The biggest issue with the symptoms above is that they can be indicative of many other types of conditions and diseases. For example, the symptoms above are often misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome. By the time ovarian cancer is actually detected, it can often be in its most dangerous stages.

Living with ovarian cancer is not only physically devastating but it can be financially devastating as well. A recent study shows that a woman will, on average, pay upwards $211,000 on treatments – this includes hospital charges, pharmacy charges, and physician charges. Talc is often found in many products beyond simply baby powder. It can be found in common cosmetics and even some foods. It always pays to know the ingredients in products used, but sometimes a manufacturer can fail to disclose that talc is included. The results can be devastating.

If you or a loved one is living with ovarian cancer as a result of talc containing products, do not fight alone. An experienced product liability lawyer may be able to fight for compensation for your medical costs.
