In brief: Ovarian Cancer

A malignant tumor in the ovary, which can take on many appearances, from cystic to solid, from small to large, can involve the ovary.
Generally, ovarian cancer strikes after age 45, but it can appear as early as the 20's or 30's. It can be subtle or silent, or you may experience pain, bloating, bleeding, fatigue, or weight gain or loss. If you are concerned, see your gynecologist for an exam.
