- Know the Symptoms: Most women don't know the risk factors or symptoms (persistent bloating, abdominal or pelvic pain, feeling full quickly when eating, and changes in urination). If you have symptoms or a family history of the disease, talk to a doctor. Don't wait; the earlier ovarian cancer is diagnosed, the better the prognosis.
2. Spread the Word: Talk to your friends and family members about what you've learned.
