you can’t see it
it’s not there.
Although it’s more common in older women, ovarian cancer
affects women of all ages, even in their 20s. There is no early
detection test, and symptoms can be subtle. But while you
can’t see it, you can take steps to get ahead of it by knowing
your risk factors. Family history of cancer and presence of
gene mutations like BRCA are risk factors, so talk to your
family and your doctor. This information makes you less
likely to ignore vague signs that could indicate disease.
Meanwhile, promising collaborative research
will continue to shed light on new advances in
diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer.
