27 Free Ovarian Cancer Ebooks – September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
Ovarian cancer usually occurs in post-menopausal women but can affect women of all ages. The most common type of ovarian cancer is epithelial ovarian cancer, meaning the tumor starts in the epithelial covering of the ovary. Younger women are more likely to develop ovarian germ cell tumors (which start in young cells similar to the eggs contained within the ovary), and older women may develop ovarian stromal cell tumors, which start in the supporting tissue (stroma) contained within the ovary. Each type of ovarian cancer requires a different type of treatment.

Ovarian cancer is not common. But because ovarian cancer often goes undetected until it is in an advanced stage, it is the number one cause of deaths from gynecologic cancer in the United States. It often progresses significantly before a patient is diagnosed. This is because the symptoms of ovarian cancer can be easily confused with less life-threatening digestive issues such as bloating, constipation, and gas. Roughly only 20 percent of ovarian cancers are detected before it spreads beyond the ovaries.

There is no sure way to totally prevent ovarian cancer, but certain factors have been associated with lower risk such as the use of oral contraceptives, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Nonetheless, the best thing that you can do to protect yourself if you think that you might be at risk is to be checked regularly by your doctor. Help spread awareness of ovarian cancer by being informed and educating others!

This post is doing exactly that – to create awareness. Lots of research, guides and information are provided below for your reference and further reading. Feel free to forward this list to your friends, relatives or anyone who needs it.
