Ovarian cancer has often been called the "silent killer." Although experts are making progress in identifying ovarian cancer symptoms, early warning signs can be vague—like abdominal and pelvic pain, bloating, urinary frequency, feeling full quickly while eating, fatigue, upset stomach—and hard to differentiate from our body's usual quirks. Plus, in many cases, by the time we have identifiable symptoms, the cancer may have progressed to a later, harder-to-treat stage. That's why it's important to know the ovarian cancer risk factors that may affect you. Read on to reduce as many risk factors as you can, then keep a watchful eye on the symptoms above if you have risk factors outside of your control.
