Ovarian Cancer: How Early Detection Saved This Woman’s Life

Cann started noticing small symptoms

It began with something as simple as peeing more than usual. Cann noticed that she started having to go not only more often, but also with a new urgency. It got to the point that she could no longer enjoy her evening walks around the local woods without desperately having to run to the bathroom.

Eventually, Cann noticed a subtle lump. She would only feel this lump insider her stomach whenever she was lying down. Because it was painless and very subtle, she didn't worry too much about it. Distracted by the hectic life of a schoolteacher, she blamed a lot of her symptoms on being stressed or tired.
