Deadly cancer can be identified during meals. Understand

Ovarian cancer causes about 3,921 deaths annually in Brazil and is the second most common gynecological neoplasm, according to the National Cancer Institute (Inca). The condition is considered silent because it does not have specific symptoms.

Some changes in health status should, however, alert women to investigate the possibility of ovarian cancer. In this neoplasm, as well as in others, early detection increases the chances of successful treatment.

According to experts, some symptoms of ovarian cancer can be identified at meal times. Are they:

  • Feeling of early satiety;
  • Nausea;
  • Vomiting;
  • Edema (swelling) of the lower limbs

“The ovaries are pelvic structures, so an ovarian tumor has room to grow all the way to the upper abdomen. When this happens, it begins to compress the intestine, stomach and blood and lymphatic vessels, causing the symptoms indicated”, explains oncologist Janyara Teixeira de Souza e Silva.
