Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian Cancer: The Silent Killer

(ARA) - September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Ovarian cancer is the deadliest of gynecological cancers and the fourth-leading cause of cancer death among American women. In 2005, it is estimated that over 22,000 women will be diagnosed with the disease and more than 16,000 will lose their lives to it. Although ovarian cancer is most common in women over the age of 50, it can affect women of any age.

With no effective, easy-to-use means of early detection available, many women may miss the subtle and vague symptoms. Symptoms may include pelvic and/or abdominal discomfort or pain; vague but persistent gastrointestinal complaints such as gas, nausea, and indigestion; unexplained changes in bowel habits, frequency and/or urgency of urination; weight loss and ongoing fatigue. Because of this, 75 percent of cases are detected at a late stage. As a result, approximately 50 percent of all patients are alive and disease-free five years after diagnosis.

However, if caught and treated early, the five-year survival rate can jump to over 90 percent. Fortunately, clinically important advances in diagnosis and treatment are being made every day. The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) is making a tremendous impact on the world of ovarian cancer research, having funded numerous cutting-edge research projects across the country. 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, a long-time partner of this fund, supports its initiatives by donating ten percent of proceeds from the sale of its Hopeful Wishes Bouquet.
