Risk Factors

Ovarian cancer is a malignancy that can spread to other tissues and organs including the peritoneum and the diaphragm and can also enter the bloodstream or lymphatic system and travel to other parts of the body. Between one and two women in every thousand develop this disease and delay in diagnosis or treatment is often as a result of medical malpractice resulting in thousands of clinical negligence settlements every year. The cause of this illness is unknown however the following factors may increase the chance of developing this disease :-

  • family history of carcinoma is associated with increased risk
  • first-degree relatives of a woman who has suffered this illness are at increased risk
  • risk increases with age and occurs most often in women over the age of 50
  • women who have had breast or colon cancer have a greater chance of developing cancer of the ovaries
  • women who have never had children are more likely to develop cancer of the ovaries than women who have had children
  • hormone replacement therapy may cause an increased risk
  • fertility drugs may increase the risk

Symptoms

Ovarian cancer is difficult to detect in its early stages and women often have no symptoms until the disease is in an advanced stage. Signs and symptoms may include:

  • nausea, diarrhoea, constipation or frequent urination
  • abdominal pain or discomfort
  • loss of appetite
  • weight loss or gain
  • bloated sensation even after a light meal
  • abnormal vaginal bleeding

Diagnosis

Diagnosis of ovarian cancer may involve tests and physical examination including :-

  • examination of the vagina, uterus, ovaries, bladder, fallopian tubes, and rectum to find any abnormality
  • scans
  • biopsy using laparoscopy techniques to remove samples of tissue for testing at which time the entire ovary may be removed
  • ultrasound which can distinguish between healthy tissues, cysts and tumours
  • blood tests to measure chemicals indicative of ovarian cancer
