We’ve all had those days when we eat something or just gulp a glass of water yet our stomach bloat up like we’ve swallowed a balloon. That’s just the worst, isn’t it? Well, to counter it we take up an anti-gas pill or any home-remedy and we’re good to go. But what if the bloating we’re experiencing is something different and much more dangerous than we’d expect.
According to new studies, it is found that bloating might be a hidden symptom of ovarian cancer. Although it is common for every one of us to bloat every once in a while, it might be a matter of concern if the bloating is persistent and gets worse with time.
Bloating usually doesn’t call for medical attention. It can lessen or completely disappear if we watch out what we’re eating or take some anti-gas pills or antacids. But when these pills don’t do a thing or the bloating you get is accompanied by other symptoms like vomiting, constipation, sharp abdominal pain, frequent urination or nausea, its time you book a trip to the hospital.
Other symptoms of ovarian cancer include an upset stomach, menstrual changes, fatigue, pain during sexual intercourse, abdominal swelling with weight loss, and fatigue. The thing about ovarian cancer is, it cannot be prevented by changing your diet or taking anti-gas pills. It spreads throughout the body before the patient is diagnosed and every day it claims about 11 lives.
So it is a smart move to visit the doctor every once in a while and get checked regularly. Because the earlier you’re diagnosed with ovarian cancer, the more likely you are to beat it. And it’s not just for ovarian cancer you need to get checked as regularly as you can but for every other disease as well.
