September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

Ovarian Cancer is a group of diseases that originates in the ovaries, or in the related areas of the fallopian tubes and the peritoneum (the tissue lining that covers organs in the abdomen). Knowing the signs and symptoms, as well as being aware of what is normal for you, could possibly help you and your doctor catch ovarian cancer in the early stages.

What are the signs and symptoms? The most obvious is unusual vaginal bleeding (particularly if you are past menopause) or abnormal discharge from your vagina. Other signs and symptoms can include:

Make sure to journal what symptoms you are having and how long they have been going on. Then call our office at 937-323-7340 to schedule an appointment. (Appointments can also be made through the online portal, myhealthrecord.com, or on our website www.physurg.net.) 

Share your journal with your doctor the day of your visit and have an open, honest conversation about how you have been feeling. All this gives the doctor a clearer picture of what you have been experiencing and helps them to determine what tests or treatments you may need. Keep in mind, symptoms may be caused by something other than cancer, but the only way to know is to see your doctor. 

Rest assured, Physicians & Surgeons for Women will be here for you, providing support and compassionate care during the difficult times as well as the good.
