How Can Women Reduce Their Risk of Ovarian Cancer?
Ovarian cancer is considered to be breast cancer’s sister cancer. It's often considered to be more dangerous than Breast Cancer because it's not uncommon for ovarian cancer to be detected in it’s late stages. But the real question many patients ask is, "What can be done to reduce my risk of developing ovarian cancer?"CEO of Ovarian Cancer National Alliance Calaneet Balas says that unfortunately, there is not a lot you can do reduce your risk but, there are still a couple of things you can do. One surprising way to reduce your ovarian cancer risk is to take birth control. Taking birth control for five years or more can reduce your risk of developing ovarian cancer by up to 50%. Watch the video below as CEO Calaneet Balas shares valuable information about how you can reduce your risk of developing ovarian cancer.

Out of all types of cancer, ovarian cancer has the highest mortality rate. Doctors urge women to take care of their health and to regularly pay a visit to their gynecologist in order for the disease to be noticed on time. Risk factors: The reasons for ovarian cancer are still unknown. Factors that may affect the occurrence of this disease are: age (older women in menopause are more at risk), family history (cancer in the family), reproductive function of women (women who have not gave birth or did later in life) environmental factors, hormone therapy etc. Symptoms: Ovarian cancer is considered a “silent disease” because symptoms often occur when the disease is already advanced. The most common symptoms include cramping, abdominal swelling, flatulence, vomiting or sudden weight loss, pain in the pelvic area, frequent and sudden urination. Also, tumor of the ovary may indicate constant feeling of fatigue, pain during sexual intercourse, abdominal pain, unusual vaginal bleeding, constipation, diarrhea or vomiting. Prevention: This malignant disease is the deadliest because it is late revealed. The percentage of women who go to gynecology examinations is very small, and very often they go to the doctor too late, when the disease is already at an advanced stage. Ovarian cancer threatens all women and it cannot be detected by a Pap test, but the disease can be overcome if detected in time. This is why going to regular gynecological examinations is extremely important. Oral contraception is recommended as prevention.

Ovarian Cancer: Risk Factors, Prevention and Early Detection Video – Brigham and Women’s Hospital
Christopher P. Crum, MD, Division Chief of Women’s and Perinatal Pathology, discusses ovarian cancer risk, steps that can be taken to reduce ovarian cancer risk and techniques for detecting ovarian cancer at earlier stages of the disease. Ovarian cancer is more uncommon than breast cancer; however, of the 22,000 women who develop ovarian cancer each year, about 14 or 15 thousand die from the disease. The risk of developing ovarian cancer is increased significantly by mutations in the BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 genes. Removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes may be recommended to reduce the risk of developing ovarian cancer, especially for women with BRCA 1 and BRCA2 gene mutations. Multiple births, contraceptive pills, and even tubal ligation can also reduce the risk of developing ovarian cancer. Many cases of ovarian cancer actually develop in the fallopian tube. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital developed the SEE-FIM protocol to carefully examine the end of the fallopian tube to detect ovarian cancer at very early stages.

ovarian cancer causes and risk factors
Ovarian Cancer Risk Factor Family History Family history of ovarian cancer is a risk factor; a woman has a higher chance of developing it if a close relative has had ovarian, breast, or colon cancer. Inherited gene mutations, including the BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations linked to breast cancer, are responsible for about 10% of ovarian cancers. Talk to you doctor if you have a strong family history of these cancers to determine if closer medical observation may be helpful. Age Age is the strongest risk factor for ovarian cancer. It is much more common after menopause, and using hormone therapy may increase a woman’s risk. This risk appears strongest in those who take estrogen therapy without progesterone for at least 5-10 years. It is not known whether taking estrogen and progesterone in combination also increases risk. Obesity Obesity is also a risk factor for ovarian cancer; obese women have both a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer and higher death rates from this cancer than non-obese women. The risk seems to correlate with weight, so the heaviest women have the highest risk. Thanks for watching Visit our site at http://realhealth.top

8 Early Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer, According to Women Who Experienced Them
8 Early Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer, According to Women Who Experienced Them The facts about ovarian cancer Ovarian cancer is estimated to affect over 22,000 American women this year alone, but its early symptoms are easy to miss, making it the deadliest form of female reproductive cancer. One reason ovarian cancer isn’t typically detected until it has reached stage 3 or 4 has to do with the amount of space in the abdomen and pelvis, Nimesh Nagarsheth, MD, associate professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive science at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, told Health in a prior interview. There’s enough room for organs to move as the cancer grows, masking symptoms as a result. It isn’t until there’s no more space left for a mass or tumor to hide that patients start to notice ovarian cancer symptoms. Even then, the signs can be non-descript. After all, who doesn’t feel bloated every now and then? “The symptoms are so normal that I just thought I didn’t feel well,” recalls Ashley Steinberg, a New Jersey-based legal assistant who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 24. “Plus, when you’re that age, you don’t think there’s something wrong with you. You figure it can’t be that bad.” While about half of all ovarian cancers occur in women over the age of 63, younger women aren’t immune to the disease, especially if they possess a BRCA gene mutation, which significantly raises the risk of ovarian and breast cancer. The good news is that 94% of women with ovarian cancer survive longer than five years if the disease is caught early, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). But knowing how to recognize its symptoms is key. We asked four real women associated with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition to share the first symptoms they noticed before being diagnosed with the disease. (Many of these symptoms may also have less threatening causes, but if you experience any of these ovarian cancer signs more than 12 times a month, see your gynecologist.) Here, the survivors share the warning signs that led them to their doctors. Bleedinge “In my case it was that my period was coming every two weeks,” says Sheryl Newman, who was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer at age 53. “I’d already been through menopause and stopped getting my period for about nine months. So when it started up again, I knew something wasn’t right.” Irregular bleeding is most common among women with ovarian stromal tumors (though Sheryl didn’t have them), which only account for 1% of all ovarian cancers. Stromal tumors often produce estrogen, which can cause period-like bleeding, even after menopause, according to the ACS. Bloating “It all started when my stomach felt bloated and wouldn’t go down,” says Ashley, now 29. “I ignored it, thinking it had to do with my period or my unhealthy diet. But the bloating wouldn’t go away.” The little belly Ashley always had started to expand. By the time she visited her gynecologist for an annual checkup two months later, the tumor in her abdomen had grown to the size of a watermelon, covering her right ovary and kidney. Sheryl, now 55, also found herself “blowing up” in the months leading to her diagnosis: “I knew I was putting on weight because my pants wouldn’t zip,” she remembers. “But I just thought I was getting older and, since my period was suddenly coming often, I figured that was bloating me too.” Within a few months, Sheryl says she looked like she was six months pregnant thanks to ascites, or fluid buildup that can gather in the abdomens of some people with liver disease or cancer. Increased satiety “I remember feeling full quickly,” says Kimberly Singleton, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 32. “I always used to order this one salad out and could easily finish it, but suddenly I was only eating half of it.” Ascites, the same fluid buildup that causes some ovarian cancer patients to feel bloated, may also result in a loss of appetite. Cramps “In the very beginning it felt like I was having menstrual cramps,” recalls Sheryl. Since her cycle had always been accompanied by uncomfortable cramps, she didn’t think much of the discomfort at first. It’s not uncommon for tumors growing in the pelvis to cause pain in the lower abdomen. And since the discomfort can feel similar to period cramps, many women assume the tummy troubles are benign. As Alicia Dellario, 54, tells us, “It’s very easy to ignore the symptoms of ovarian cancer.” Help us to be better SUBSCRIBE for more videos here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAf3_EHAdrHMSxk6-7bHG9w?sub_confirmation=1 More from Tamam Health: -8 Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis https://youtu.be/VnnvYaEuZVA -10 Early Signs of Lupus https://youtu.be/_uHju14c3NY -5 Common Symptoms Of Perimenopause https://youtu.be/R7jOfYE5TCA 8 Early Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer, According to Women Who Experienced Them By TAMAM HEALTH

Preventing Ovarian Cancer through early Excision of Tubes and late Ovarian Removal (PROTECTOR Study)
Researchers at Barts Cancer Institute are offering pre-menopausal women at increased risk of ovarian cancer a two-step surgical alternative to salpingo-oophorectomy (standard of care), to reduce their risk of ovarian cancer as part of the PROTECTOR Study. This involves early salpingectomy followed by delayed oophorectomy. This has the advantage of reducing the risk of ovarian cancer whilst avoiding the detrimental health consequences of premature menopause.

Exercise Can Reduce The Risk Of Ovarian Cancer
Two new studies suggest lack of exercise is associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer and of death from the disease. In one study, the researchers analyzed data from more than 8,300 ovarian cancer patients and more than 12,600 women without ovarian cancer. Those who said they had done no recreational physical activity during their lives were 34 percent more likely to develop ovarian cancer than those who exercised regularly, the researchers found. The link between inactivity and a higher risk of ovarian cancer was seen in both normal-weight women and those who were overweight or obese. The findings were recently published online in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. Kirsten Moysich is a professor of oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, in Buffalo, N.Y., and the senior author of both studies. She told UPI, "Women may be overwhelmed with mixed messages about physical activity or exercise recommendations and opt to be inactive because they feel that they cannot meet the recommended amount of physical activity."

Health Alert: Healthy diet may help lower risk of ovarian cancer
CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) - A report took a closer look at women over a lifetime that developed ovarian cancer and compared eating habits to those who did not. They found diet changes really may make a difference for some women and so can early detection. Debbie Walter is an ovarian cancer survivor who is part of a women's basketball tournament in January 2016. The tournament is to raise awareness of the symptoms of the disease and while that can certainly make a big difference in early diagnosis and treatment, the new report is one of just a few to focus on diet changes. The diet changes may help reduce a woman's risk for ovarian cancer, especially women who are African-American. It was recently presented at a conference for the American Association for Cancer Research. Researchers in the report said many of the foods that might be found in people's kitchen could make a difference. Researchers reviewed the diets of women long term and in those that had eaten certain foods they found almost a 50 percent difference in the rates of ovarian cancer. Officials looked at 600 diets, or control diets, and compared them to those who did have the cancer and they found simple things really can add up. Fruits and vegetables topped the list of those less likely to be diagnosed. They also had more whole grain breads and cereals; more lean protein with seafood and chicken compared to red meat. And there were fewer processed foods and sweets with added sugar in the diet overall. The diet was compared between those who followed the diet the most and those who followed it the least. One reason they highlighted that it was also true for women who are African-American was that they were less likely to be diagnosed with the disease but more likely to die if they got ovarian cancer.

'GMA' Hot List: Birth control linked to lower ovarian cancer risk
ABC News chief medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton shares what women should know about the results of a study that followed women for 20 years.
Birth control may reduce ovarian cancer risk
New Delhi, Oct 02 (ANI): According to a new study, use of contemporary birth control pills, patches or rings that contain both estrogen and progestin have been linked to a reduced risk for ovarian cancer in women of reproductive ages. The study backed up prior data that showed similar results with the use of older forms of oral birth control, widely used until the 1980s. The use of pills protected from nearly all types of ovarian cancer. The researchers followed the data of women aged between 15 to 79 from year 1995 to 2014. After eliminating women who had been treated for infertility, cancer, venous thrombosis or blood clots, the study was narrowed to women of reproductive age defined as ages 15 to 49. Nearly two million women were part of the study. The study then separated the women into three groups, those who had never used hormonal contraception, women currently using it or had used within the last year, and those who had stopped. It found that the risk of ovarian cancer was highest in women who had never used hormonal contraceptives and lower among women who had used the method at some point. The risk reduction appeared to strengthen with longer use of the combined hormonal birth control and diminished once use was stopped. Based on their data, researchers believe hormonal birth control prevented an estimated 21 per cent of ovarian cancers in the women included in the study. The findings are published in the medical journal BMJ. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ☛ Subscribe to our Youtube Channel - https://goo.gl/k1Aee1 ☛ Visit our Official website: https://www.aninews.in/ Enjoy and stay connected with us!! ☛ Like us: https://www.facebook.com/ANINEWS.IN ☛Follow us : https://twitter.com/ANI ☛ Circle us : https://goo.gl/QN5kXy ☛ Feedback to Shrawan K Poddar : shrawankp@aniin.com

Daily low-dose aspirin may lower risk of ovarian cancer
Story highlightsOvarian cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer-related death among American womenStandard-dose aspirin use was not linked with reduced ovarian cancer risk (CNN)Women who recently and regularly take a daily low-dose aspirin may lower their risk of developing ovarian cancer, new research suggests. The study highlights two important caveats. Daily use of standard-dose aspirin (325 milligrams) does not reduce the risk of ovarian cancer, and heavy use of nonaspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and naproxen, may increase the risk, suggests the study, published Thursday in the medical journal JAMA Oncology. Another potential limitation: The result was found only in women who had been using low-dose aspirin for less than a year.Aspirin is believed to lower the risk of ovarian cancer -- the fifth most common cause of cancer-related death among American women -- by reducing inflammation, according to the authors.The new analysis included data on 205,498 women who were part of the Nurses' Health Study and Nurses' Health Study II, two long-term studies that use questionnaires to track disease and health behavior in women. Read MoreOf those women, 1,054 developed ovarian cancer. The research team examined how these women used aspirin, non-aspirin NSAIDs and acetaminophen and compared their behavior with that of other participants.Ovarian cancer vaccine shows promising results in human study Analysis showed that women who had been using low-dose aspirin for less than a year had a 23% lower risk of ovarian cancer than women who did not use aspirin at all. However, women who used low-dose aspirin for five years or longer and those who used standard-dose aspirin (325 milligrams) did not show improved odds against developing ovarian cancer, the study indicated.By contrast, use of non-aspirin NSAIDs for less than a year was associated with a 19% increased risk of ovarian cancer, the researchers from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found. NSAIDs taken in quantities of at least 10 tablets per week for multiple years increased the risk of ovarian cancer by 34%. However, when NSAIDs were used less than two days a week for five years or longer, they were not linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer.Does talcum powder cause cancer? A legal and scientific battle ragesOlder women who take low-dose aspirin to reduce their risk of heart disease are not likely to increase their risk of ovarian cancer, the researchers concluded. Other scientists believe further research is needed to verify the results.Stephen Evans, a professor of pharmacoepidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, told Science Media Centre the new analysis is "good, but the limitations in the data mean that the findings should be treated with caution." "The results are slightly puzzling in relation to aspirin, with low doses showing a decreased risk and higher doses showing an increased risk," said Evans, who did

Foods that can Help Prevent Ovarian Cancer!
Experts believe that one-third of all cancers can be prevented by what you eat. For decades, public health researchers around the world have been studying how certain foods lower the risk of different cancers. What has emerged is good evidence that specific foods are associated with a lower risk for ovarian cancer. Some of those foods are, like, fish, particularly fish with Omega-3 fatty acids, there have been studies in Europe that have actually shown a rather substantial up to 75% reduction in the risk of ovarian cancer by eating fish, but also some vegetables. So vegetables that are green leafy vegetables and including members of the lettuce family and chicory family like endive, most of the studies are coming out of Europe where these types of vegetables are much more commonly eaten than in the United States.

Massive Ovarian Tumor Removal Surgery..!!
Ovarian cancer is a cancer that forms in or on an ovary. It results in abnormal cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. When this process begins, there may be no or only vague symptoms. Symptoms become more noticeable as the cancer progresses. These symptoms may include bloating, pelvic pain, abdominal swelling, and loss of appetite, among others. Common areas to which the cancer may spread include the lining of the abdomen, lymph nodes, lungs, and liver. The risk of ovarian cancer increases in women who have ovulated more over their lifetime. This includes those who have never had children, those who begin ovulation at a younger age and those who reach menopause at an older age. Other risk factors include hormone therapy after menopause, fertility medication, and obesity. Factors that decrease risk include hormonal birth control, tubal ligation, and breast feeding. About 10% of cases are related to inherited genetic risk; women with mutations in the genes BRCA1 or BRCA2 have about a 50% chance of developing the disease. The most common type of ovarian cancer, comprising more than 95% of cases, is ovarian carcinoma. There are five main subtypes of ovarian carcinoma, of which high-grade serous carcinoma is the most common. These tumors are believed to start in the cells covering the ovaries, though some may form at the Fallopian tubes. Less common types of ovarian cancer include germ cell tumors and sex cord stromal tumors. A diagnosis of ovarian cancer is confirmed through a biopsy of tissue, usually removed during surgery. Screening is not recommended in women who are at average risk, as evidence does not support a reduction in death and the high rate of false positive tests may lead to unneeded surgery, which is accompanied by its own risks. Those at very high risk may have their ovaries removed as a preventive measure. If caught and treated in an early stage, ovarian cancer is often curable. Treatment usually includes some combination of surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Outcomes depend on the extent of the disease, the subtype of cancer present, and other medical conditions. The overall five-year survival rate in the United States is 45%. Outcomes are worse in the developing world. Signs and symptoms Early symptoms Site of ovarian cancer Early signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer may be absent or subtle. In most cases, symptoms exist for several months before being recognized and diagnosed. Symptoms can be misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome. The early stages of ovarian cancer tend to be painless. Symptoms can vary based on the subtype. Low malignant potential (LMP) tumors, also known as borderline tumors, do not cause an increase in CA125levels and are not identifiable with an ultrasound. The typical symptoms of an LMP tumor can include abdominal distension or pelvic pain. Particularly large masses tend to be benign or borderline. The most typical symptoms of ovarian cancer include bloating, abdominal or pelvic pain or discomfort, back pain, irregular menstruation or postmenopausal vaginal bleeding, pain or bleeding after or during sexual intercourse, loss of appetite, fatigue, diarrhea, indigestion, heartburn, constipation, nausea, feeling full, and possibly urinary symptoms (including frequent urination and urgent urination). Later symptoms The growing mass may cause pain if ovarian torsion develops. Symptoms can be caused by a mass pressing on the other abdominopelvic organs or from metastases. If these symptoms start to occur more often or more severely than usual, especially after no significant history of such symptoms, ovarian cancer is considered. Metastases may cause a Sister Mary Joseph nodule. Rarely, teratomas can cause growing teratoma syndrome or peritoneal gliomatosis. Some experience menometrorrhagia and abnormal vaginal bleeding after menopause in most cases. Other common symptoms include hirsutism, abdominal pain, virilization, and an adnexal mass.

Prevention and Early Detection of Ovarian Cancer
The past decade has seen rapid growth of research into the prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer. Screening studies have been met with mixed results and the newly identified putative precursor lesions within the distal fallopian tube have become well accepted. This conference is an outreach of the Department of Defense-sponsored ovarian cancer research consortium on early molecular changes associated with disease. This symposium will bring together leading researchers to discuss progress made toward prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer. Only through understanding the origins of ovarian cancer is progress likely to be made in these important areas. Learning Objectives Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to: Understand the current molecular approaches to prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer Obtain an update on the latest molecular findings implicating the distal fallopian tube as the site of origin for most ovarian cancer Learn how current laboratory research will impact future prevention and treatment

Ovarian Cancer Risk Factors: BRCA1 & BRCA2 | Memorial Sloan Kettering
To learn more about ovarian cancer treatments, please visit http://www.mskcc.org/ovariancancer Like us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sloankettering Follow us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/sloan_kettering Memorial Sloan Kettering experts discuss the risk factors associated with developing ovarian cancer. Having the inherited gene BRCA1 or BRCA2 increases a woman's risk, as does having a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer. {partial transcript} Dr. Brown, we talked a little bit about risk factors, family history, BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations. We normally think about those things with breast cancer, but do they have something to do with ovarian cancer as well? One of the most important tools that a woman can have is awareness about this disease - in addition to knowing the symptoms, knowing her family history. It’s not just about knowing her family history on her mother’s side, but also, family history on the father’s side, extended family, siblings and cousins. The cancers that you want to look out for are breast cancer and ovarian cancer. However, you want to look for breast cancer specifically at age 50 or younger. Also if the relative that had breast cancer before she stopped having menstrual periods. Other cancers you want to look for are colon cancer and prostate cancer. That means looking to see if cancers are happening from generation to generation.
Ovarian Cancer Risks and Prevention
Ovarian cancer is often known as the "silent killer." This is due to the subtle nature of the symptoms. If you are at risk for ovarian cancer, then it is imperative that you know the symptoms because the earlier you catch this disease, the better your chances of survival are. Some factors that could put you at risk include uninterrupted ovulation, family history, certain gene mutations and even age.

Risks for Ovarian Cancer
It’s the deadliest gynecological cancer but there’s no way to screen for it. Each year nearly 22,000 new cases of ovarian cancer are diagnosed. Dr. Sami Sandadi, a gynecologic oncologist on staff at Lee Memorial Health System, says ovarian cancer is an aggressive disease that’s usually found once it’s already at stage 3. “Unfortunately, there are about 14,000 deaths per year. It’s the second most common gynecologic malignancy; however it’s the most lethal.” But Dr. Sandadi says there’s no way to screen for it. “It’s a common misconception, women come in and say, but I had my pap smear every year, but that has nothing to do with ovarian cancer, that’s for cervical cancer.” Health experts say it’s important for women to be in tune with their bodies and be aware of symptoms like significant abdominal bloating that could last months, getting full easily, and weight gain or weight loss. “One of the most important things is family history. If there’s a significant family history of ovarian cancer or even breast cancer it heightens our senses about looking for this,” said Dr. Sandadi. Another important risk factor is age. “For the most part it’s a disease in post-menopausal women. It’s on the rare side to find it in someone who hasn’t gone through menopause,” said Dr. Sandadi. Like the cancer, the treatment is aggressive typically involving surgery and chemo therapy. “The general surgery is a hysterectomy, which means a removal of uterus and the cervix and a removal of both tubes and ovaries. The whole goal of the surgery is to get rid of all the cancer,” said Dr. Sandadi. After a four to five month treatment about 70 percent of cases are able to go into remission.
