PAY ATTENTION TO THESE SYMPTOMS IN OVARIAN CANCER

Turkey Medicals member and hospital Obstetrician-Gynecologist Dr. said that routine gynecological checks are very important against ovarian cancer that does not give symptoms at an early stage. Dr. besides that, “Indigestion, digestive system problems, complaints about urinating, abdominal pain, palpable mass, sometimes menstrual irregularities such as” stressed the need to pay attention to symptoms.

Giving information about ovarian cancer, department Obstetrician-Gynecologist Dr. referring to the fact that the ovaries are the organs responsible for secreting the hormones of women of childbearing age and ensuring that they are a healthy woman, said, “When we say ovaries, we should understand 2 types of cells. Cells of the epithelium and embryonic period. ”We see that when these cells multiply uncontrolled, they cause ovarian cancer, and when they cause cancer, it becomes very important to diagnose it early and treat it early, because this is vital,” he said.

Noting that ovarian cancer, unlike other gynecological cancers, does not give symptoms at an early stage and has a risk in this respect, Dr. “We see ovarian cancer more often at the postmenopausal age,” was said. The cancers we see at this age are mostly composed of epithelial cells. But this can also be seen in young girls who have not started their period. The cancer rate that we see in them is more like 60 percent developing from embryonic cells,” he said.

The risk increases in those who do not give birth

Dr. noted that women in families with familial cancers, a number of breast cancers, and ovarian and uterine cancers are in the risk group, saying, “The risk increases in patients who have never given birth. However, it is very important in hormonal and environmental factors, and it is also known recently that changes in some genes are also observed with ovarian cancer,” he said. ”Pay attention to these symptoms” Underlines that ovarian cancer gives very few symptoms, Dr. “Nevertheless, there are a number of changes that can occur in the body. These can also be indigestion, digestive system problems, problems with urination again, there may be swelling in the abdomen, there may be a mass that comes to hand, sometimes there may be menstrual irregularities. Again, symptoms such as thickening of the voice, male-type hair loss seen in some tumors, or excessive hair growth and hair growth on the body warn our patients for a serious examination. We diagnose ovarian cancer in Turkey  if there are advanced examinations and diagnostic methods performed in patients who are admitted with these complaints,” he said.

Annual routine checks are very important

Dr. “That is why routine, annual gynecological examinations are very important in the diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Signs such as a mass that comes to the hand during examinations, we again see cysts or mass-like structures in the ovaries, we see free fluid in the abdomen, warn us to conduct further examinations. At the point of further examinations, we measure the blood supply and thickness of the cyst with doppler ultrasound. However, we pay attention to whether there are soft tissues in the cyst masses. Again, the amount of free fluid in the abdomen is important for us at this point,” he said.
