This week, LetsGetChecked discuss bloating, and other symptoms of ovarian cancer.

Did you know that if ovarian cancer is diagnosed in the early stages, there is a 94% chance of surviving for at least 5 more years? If you are experience bloating and other signs of ovarian cancer, it's time to get checked.


Statistics Regarding Ovarian Cancer

In a recent survey conducted in the UK by Target Ovarian Cancer, only 34% of women say they would contact a doctor about regular bloating.

On the other hand, 50% of those surveyed said that they would make changes to their diet in order to relieve constant bloating. Doing so rather than flagging the symptom to their doctor, can potentially delay the diagnosis of possible ovarian cancer. So what are some of the signs of ovarian cancer?
