Dr. Oz To Focus On Ovarian Cancer

Dr. Oz To Focus On Ovarian Cancer
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Two out of every three women diagnosed with ovarian cancer do not survive.

That's why Doctor Oz is unveiling his national Break The Silence On Ovarian Cancer Campaign on Tuesday.

The reason the disease is so deadly is because women often aren't diagnosed early enough. Dr. Maria Bell at Sanford Women's Health says early signs of ovarian cancer are similar to other less dangerous conditions.

"Early signs and symptoms would be they get full fast. Their abdominal girth, how big their tummy is, starts to get bigger. Their pants are tight," Bell said.

Bell says most women who are diagnosed with cancer are in their early 60s. She says people who have a family history of ovarian cancer are at higher risk. And research has found birth control pills may help prevent ovarian cancer.
