Benign ovarian cysts can also cause these symptoms: sudden, sharp, and severe
pain is usually caused by an ovarian cyst. Because the symptoms of ovarian
cancer overlap with several other conditions, this cancer is difficult to detect
early and is frequently diagnosed only at an advanced stage. A firm diagnosis is
made by biopsy, although a number of other tests may be performed. Ovarian
cancer is defined by stages 1 through 4 by the extent of spread and by the type
of cell from which it originated. It most often spreads to nearby organs within
the abdomen, and then to the liver, lungs, or bones. click

| Approximately one of every 70
women in the United States will contract ovarian cancer at some point in her
life. The risk of developing this form of cancer increases with early age at
first menstruation, late menopause, and no
pregnancies. All of these conditions increase the chances that estrogen, the
primary female hormone, will stimulate the development of ovarian cancer.
High-fat diets, poor nutrition, getting angry, using talcum powder in the
underwear, asbestos exposure, and radiation have also been associated with an
increased risk for ovarian cancer. Heredity is also believed to play a role in
the disease. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are abdominal swelling, masses in
the abdomen, bleeding, lower back pain, and urinary
|Ovarian cancer is a cancerous growth arising from the ovary.
Symptoms are frequently very subtle early on and may include: bloating, pelvic
pain, difficulty eating and frequent urination, and are easily confused with
More than 90% of the ovarian cancers are classified as "epithelial"
and are believed to arise from the surface epithelium of the ovary. However,
there is some evidence suggests that the fallopian tube could also be the source
of some ovarian cancers. Since the ovaries and tubes are closely related to each
other, it is thought that these fallopian cancer cells can mimic ovarian cancer.
Other types may arise from the egg cells called a (germ cell tumor or supporting
cells. These cancers are grouped into the category of gynecologic cancer.
Signs and symptoms - of ovarian cancer are frequently absent early on
and when they exist they may be subtle. In most cases, the symptoms persist for
several months before being recognized and diagnosed. Most women with ovarian
cancer report one or more symptoms such as abdominal pain or discomfort, an
abdominal mass, bloating, back pain, urinary urgency, constipation,
tiredness and a range of other non-specific symptoms, as well as more specific
symptoms such as pelvic pain, abnormal vaginal bleeding or involuntary weight
loss. There can be a build-up of fluid in the abdominal cavity.
A prospective case control study of 1,709 women visiting primary care clinics
found a combination of symptoms includsing: bloating, increased abdominal size,
and urinary symptoms was found in 43% of those with ovarian cancer but in only
8% of those presenting to primary care clinics. Two case-control studies, both
subject to results being inflated by spectrum bias, have been reported. The
first found that women with ovarian cancer had symptoms of increased abdominal
size, bloating, urge to pass urine and pelvic pain. The smaller, second study
found that women with ovarian cancer had pelvic and/or abdominal pain, increased
abdominal size/bloating, and difficulty eating and feeling full. The second
study produced a list of symptoms that was considered critical if any of the six
symptoms "occurred more than 12 times per month but were present for
under 1 year".
Doctor's Comments about Drugs

it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity."
O.W. Holmes, (Prof. of Medicine Harvard University)
"Every drug increases and complicates the patients
condition." Robert Henderson, M.D.
"In sickness the body is already loaded with impurities. By
taking drug - medicines more impurities are added, thereby the case is further
embarrassed and harder to cure." Elmer Lee, M.D.
"The necessity of teaching mankind not to take drugs and
medicines, is a duty incumbent upon all who know their uncertainty and injurious
effects; and the time is not far distant when the drug system will be
abandoned." Charles Armbruster, M.D.

You would not think of exposing yourself to an Atomic Bomb fallout or
excessive X-rays. But not getting enough vitamins and minerals is just as
dangerous. Cells in your body not getting their vitamins and minerals suffer
both DNA and mitochondrial damage. These cells under a microscope look like they
have been hit with radiation. This type of damage may cause you to age faster
and can lead to Cancer
and other degenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and others.
