We Can Raise Awareness About Women’s Health – Check Out What to Know During Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Raise awareness about women’s health during Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

Women’s health is important. While breast cancer has garnered lots of attention in recent years, ovarian cancer is not as well known. September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month! Join The Maria Sanchez Show in raising awareness about ovarian cancer. We can help to do our part to save a life and please check out these facts about ovarian cancer.

  • Ovarian cancer affects one in 72 women.
  • There’s no screening procedure for ovarian cancer, making it hard to detect.
  • Be vigilant of any symptoms of ovarian cancer. Symptoms include bloating, abdominal pain, fatigue, frequent urination, digestive problems, trouble eating, and back pain. If symptoms persist, call your doctor.
  • Every woman is at risk for ovarian cancer. Be vigilant so that you and your loved ones can detect cancer sooner than later.
  • More information and details are available at www.ovariancancer.org.  They even have 30 days of suggestions as to how to honor Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.  Teal is the color of the cause.  #30DaysofTeal.
  • Ovarian Cancer is one of the deadliest of women’s cancers.  This cancer typically occurs in women in their fifties and sixties with the media age being 63.
  • Many women who are diagnosed with Ovarian cancer have a genetic history that may include carrying the BRCA mutation gene and having a strong family history of ovarian cancer.
  • Unfortunately, many women don’t seek help until the disease has begun to spread, but if detected at its earliest stage, the five-year survival rate is more than 93%.
