Ovarian Cancer Signs & Symptoms
For women, paying attention to our health and family medical history as we age is essential. You must talk to both sides of your family to know what you can expect. Dr Oz, Dr Kate Wolin, and Dr Diljeet Singh went over the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer, something that all women have to worry about. It’s a silent killer that attacks quickly, so talk to your doctor about your options.
Already we’ve looked at limiting or dairy and the effects of pregnancy and birth control pills. Dr Singh said that you should think about taking a low-dose birth control because it can help repair tears in your ovaries. Smoking as well is a no no when trying to prevent cancer.
Vitamin D3 Prevents Ovarian Cancer?
Working Vitamin D3 into your diet will also help with ovarian cancer prevention. You lower the risks of getting the disease and also the risk of dying from ovarian cancer. Science is still researching this vitamin and the effects on ovarian cancer, but you doctor can check your vitamin D3 levels. It’s hard to get through your diet, so consider taking a 1000 IU vitamin D3 supplement to give you a boost.
You can reduce your risk of ovarian cancer by 20% if you incorporate high fiber foods into your diet. This keeps your hormones balanced, which is very key in ovarian cancer prevention.
Track Your Ovarian Cancer Symptoms
Dr Oz suggested taking a notebook or calendar and checking the early warning signs of this aggressive and silent killer. There are four things your should watch four:
- Increased Abdominal Size or Bloating
- Abdominal/Pelvic Pain
- Feeling Full Quickly or Difficulty Eating
- Frequent/Urgent Urination
While these symptoms can tie to other things, being informed never hurt anyone. Have an open dialogue with your doctor about your symptoms and don’t ignore your health.
