 An Eye-opener for Women- 25 Year Old Diagnosed With Ovarian Cancer

Elizabeth Harrison, a student of a PhD programme and living in Tottenham, did not think much of the increasing weight around her middle. Infact, onlookers  thought she was pregnant.

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.
