There are many symptoms of ovarian cancer, including a swollen abdomen, abdominal pain and a loss of appetite women. Further, women who have never been pregnant, and women with a family history of ovarian cancer are at greater risk for the disease.In many cases, ovarian cancer is not detected until it has spread outside of the ovaries. At this point, the cancer becomes especially difficult to treat. While ovarian cancer can be difficult to detect in its early stages, it is not impossible to detect.
