Information about Ovarian Cancer


It isn’t talked about as much as other forms of cancer, but ovarian cancer is the deadliest of all gynecologic cancers. One in 57 women develop ovarian cancer and there have been several studies which have shown it runs in families. The major problem with ovarian cancer is it is usually found in the advanced stages and by that point the disease is very difficult to treat and the chance of five year survival is about 20%. Sadly 75% of women are diagnosed at this advanced stage. When ovarian cancer is detected early, before it is spread beyond the ovaries, more than 90% of women will survive longer than 5 years. Unfortunately, the symptoms of ovarian cancer are very vague. Feeling bloated, a sensation of being full even after eating just a small amount of food, low back pain, and fatigue are all signs, but obviously they can mean other things as well.

Deciding on Back Surgery

Most people will have back problems at some point in their lifetime, but how do you decide if you need surgery. Obviously, surgery can help in some cases, but in others it might be more problematic than it’s worth. Here’s what many physician think. Patients at severe risk of long-term neurologic injury benefit from surgery, but if the risk of nerve damage is small or even moderate, back surgeries are often put off or totally avoided. Everyone is not the same. There are certain exceptions to the rule. The people who have severe pain or disability need to be looked at very closely.
