Ovarian Cancer in Women

The Illinois State Veterinary Medical Association has been asked by the National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Society to try to get the early warning signs of O/C out to our clients. O/C affects 1 in 70 women. It knows no age limit.  The physician who spoke at our annual meeting, an O/C oncologist, said that the disease is not always "silent"; he said it "whispers" to  you. He said,  "as a woman, you sometimes have to ask your physician to test you for O/C".  

1) Frequent urination,
2) Feeling full quickly when eating,
3) Abdominal pain and
4) Bloating.

Remember FFAB. We want our clients to be educated on this issue.
