Ovarian Cancer – the Disease that Whispers

Do you know that the deadliest of all gynecological cancers is known as the disease that whispers?

That’s because the symptoms of ovarian cancer can be vague and easily confused by other conditions like bloating, back pain and changes in your bowel habits.

Dr. Molly Brewer, a gynecologic oncologist at the UConn Health Center, tells NBC Connecticut that the warning signs of ovarian cancer can be tough to diagnose until its later stages when treatment can be difficult so the sooner ovarian cancer is found and treated, the better your chance for recovery.
