You may have heard Ovarian Cancer termed as a ‘silent killer’ before, and there’s a good reason for it- the disease does not have a number obvious indicators as, say skin cancer or breast cancer. However, that does not mean females do not experience signs.
Ovarian cancer mainly affects females who have turned 50 years of age or older. It may spread to bowel and bladder, to the lining of the lymph nodes or the abdomen, liver, and lungs.
Even though ovarian cancer records for only about 3% of cancers affecting females, it results in more death than other cancers affecting the female reproductive system.
