At the insistence of her sister, Elizabeth consulted a doctor, and to her utter dismay, the examination revealed a growth on her right ovary.  

Diagnosed with ovarian cancer, she had to undergo surgery where her ovary and appendix were removed. A tumor of size 23.5cm was found at the time of surgery.  

Symptoms of ovarian cancer do not show up for a long time. Women must be aware about the symptoms of ovarian cancer to protect their health and avoid complications.
