OC Awareness Month #1- Every Woman...

Today,  September 1st begins National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

Every day on this Blog I will post information about ovarian cancer - statistics, risk factors, symptoms, treatments, etc.

#1 Every woman is at risk for ovarian cancer.

Sure different cancers can be found in men and women even breast cancer but it is the gynecologic cancers like ovarian ( uterine, endometrial, vulvar, cervical) that are only found in women. You can be young or old or middle age. You can be caucasian, african american, hispanic, asian. You can be born in the US, Canada, Europe , or Asia. But if you are a woman and you have ovaries or fallopian tubes ( which is being studied as the origin of ovarian cancer) you may develop ovarian cancer.

Every Day is a Blessing!
