Ovarian cancer has a high survival rate when discovered early. On the other hand, if one expects too much, which very often happens, the disease worsens and the survival rate decreases drastically.
True Story of A Famous Actress
It was on Lenny Letter’s website, in an open letter, that the young actress Cobie Smulders recently shared a personal experience. The 34-year-old woman known for her roles in How I Met Your Mother and in Avengers, openly spoke about her diagnostic, ovarian cancer. The purpose of her letter was to educate women about this cancer and its symptoms that could have put an end to her life.
At the age of 25, the young woman had begun to feel a constant deep tiredness. In addition, she was constantly feeling pressure in the abdomen. Fortunately, she had the brilliant idea of consulting a gynecologist once she realized her situation was not better.
This visit probably saved his life.
Few women under the age of 30 are affected, but they are still not immune. Generally, the disease develops in the late sixties and is often linked to a genetic mutation.
As soon as the cancer cells take place, the symptoms come out quickly;
- Irregular bleeding,
- Frequent urination,
- Pressure in the bladder or lower abdomen,
- Extreme fatigue,
- Loss of appetite
It is best to consult a gynecologist as soon as possible in order to get a professional diagnostic. Be attentive to your body!
