What Do Ovarian Cancer and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Have in Common?

Be conscious of your body and address your risk

Along with being active in checking whether or not you are developing ovarian cancer, it is important to attempt to prevent ovarian cancer. While none of these can fully act as a defense, even lowering your risk slightly is definitely worth it.

Having a pelvic examination once a year is important, and potentially even more often if your physician advises it. If your symptoms alter, or you begin to experience more of those listed above, be sure to contact your doctor immediately, especially if they involve pain or abdominal swelling.
