Does Abortions Cause Ovarian Cancer
That's a lot: Six is a lot of abortions, but sometimes we have to abort and destroy a baby fetus in order to prevent giving birth to a baby with genetic mutations. One's body does not get a higher chance of ovarian or breast cancer from abortions. A woman has a lower chance of these cancers if she spends more of her life being pregnant and breastfeeding afterwards... so having six kids can be a good thing.
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
No: There is absolutely no known relationship between the two issues. The lifetime risk of ovarian cancer is very small and there may be genetic reasons but no risk from the procedure.
No: To both. Most "abortions" are natural events due to "blighted fetus" concept. Optional abortions may cause issues of non-biologic nature, but cancer is not one. Ovcysts are very common, and of no oncogenic consequence.
Possible Risk Factor: Risk factors for ovarian cancer include increasing age, obesity, prolonged use of fertility drugs, and family history of breast, ovarian, or colon cancer, especially for persons with brca 1 or 2 mutations. However, it's impossible to know why any individual develops cancer since having a risk factor does not guarantee the disease will develop and many people with cancer may not have risk factor.
No one cause: There is no specific cause for ovarian cancer, but several risk factors have been identified. Women who have a family history of either ovarian, breast, or colon cancer all are at increased risk for ovarian cancer. Most ovarian cancers are diagnosed in the six or seventh decades of life, and typically arise from the ovarian epithelium. There is no effective screening test for ovarian cancer.See 1 more doctor answer
No: This is worrisome though, especially if it's well above the reference range and there's no clear explanation. (Mild elevations mean little and the range is set so that several percent of healthies fall above.) Get with your physician about this.
No: Childbirth does not cause cancer. Actually women who have had full-term pregnancies are statistically at a lower risk for ovarian cancer than women with no kids.
What's products should I stay away from that has talcon powder in it Bc it's cause ovarian cancer?
I don't believe it: You're 20 and too young to have really grasped the extent of deception in this world. Most physicians think that the "scientific studies" showing a link between cancer and talcum powder are the result of recall bias -- ask a question the right way, and you'll get results that aren't true. If you believe all the scare stuff online and from lawyers, you'll end up unable to do anything.
Would ovarian cancer cause the feeling of being full all of the time? Or more likely just early satiety?
Agree with Dr. Legha: Ovarian cancer does not have specific symptoms. Please consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/ovarian-cancer/basics/symptoms/CON-20028096 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex.See 1 more doctor answer
Many.: Common risk factors include family history of gynecologic cancer (including ovarian and breast cancers), nulligravidity (i.e. Few or no pregnancies), polycystic ovarian syndrome, smoking, endometriosis, and obesity. As with the majority of cancers, ovarian cancer develops with characteristic genetic alterations that lead to unchecked growth of cells. This process is multifactorial.See 1 more doctor answer
Fluid or ascites: Ovarian cancer is notorious for making fluid in the belly by irritating the lining of the organs (its like a cling wrap around the organs-known as peritoneum). As the cancer grows, there is more fluid which presses on the stomach and other organs and gives a feeling of bloating and early satiety.
