Ovarian Cancer Causes And Symptoms
Ovarian cancer is claiming the lives of millions of women all over the world, even in countries that are stereotyped to be the leaders in medical technology. In fact, it is actually the lack of medical technology that is resulting in so many ovarian cancer deaths, since there are no screening methods that can officially detect the disease.
Three-quarters of British doctors surveyed incorrectly assumed that symptoms only occurred in the late stages of ovarian cancer. Based upon that information, it should be no surprise that Britain has one of the lowest survival rates for ovarian cancer in the Western World – of 6,800 cases diagnosed each year, more than 4,600 die.
