ovarian cancer -



As we all know, it is important to check in with our bodies and notice and honor what is going on.

This is from the NY Times today.   There are early warning symptoms for ovarian cancer.  It is not to alarm, but to notice and respond. 

The new advice is the first official recognition that ovarian cancer, long believed to give no warning until it was far advanced, does cause symptoms at earlier stages in many women.

The symptoms to watch out for are bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly and feeling a frequent or urgent need to urinate. A woman who has any of those problems nearly every day for more than two or three weeks is advised to see a gynecologist, especially if the symptoms are new and quite different from her usual state of health.


None of us have this now but it is to place in a file so memory can be jogged if something feels not quite right.  

Good health to us all today!
