The third most common type of cancer in women today is ovarian cancer. It is seen in 14 of every 100 thousand women in the world and our country. The symptoms of the disease are insidious, because complaints such as back pain, abdominal pain, and bloating can be confused with other diseases, so two thirds of the patients refer to the correct adrese only in the advanced period.
Ovarian cancer, which can be diagnosed at an early stage with an increase in consciousness in the last years and reaching 90% success rate in early diagnosis, is the third most common cancer in women.
Gynecology and Obstetrics Specialist Osman Temizkan said that the two thirds of the patients had a delayed diagnosis due to the fact that the symptoms could be confused with other illnesses and said "Ovarian cancer is a cancer with a low chance of making an early diagnosis because it imitates other diseases. It can be seen in women of all ages and it emerges in post-menopausal period by 75 percent. That's why annual follow-up after menopause is very important. Early diagnosis increases your chances of treatment to a great extent. If we diagnose early, about 90 percent of our patients can get rid of this disease. However, when time is lost and early diagnosis is not possible, treatment becomes difficult, "he says.
SENSITIVES IN THE SYMPTOMS
Ovarian cancer is a sneaky type of cancer, the symptoms are not a sign that emphasizes the unique Dr.. Osman Temizkan; The fact that it manifests itself in the early stages of back pain, abdominal pain, abdominal distention, constipation, complaints of urination, gas problem, but these symptoms can be confused with other diseases. The women who complain about these complaints and the doctors they applied to should definitely bring this "insidious disease" to their minds and that it is vital for them to go to a gynecologist if complaints are not passed in a short time despite the heal treatment. Osman Temizkan "Because we can easily put the diagnosis of this disease by an ultrasonography method made from the crotch, at least we can doubt it. We can also use imaging methods called tomography. This applies to all age groups, but it is vital to have an annual regular checkup for the postmenopausal obstetrician, and if hele complains, "he says.
DO NOT STOP "BELOW WEIGHT"
Although ovarian cancer is becoming widespread today, there is no specific cause. Factors such as environmental factors, air pollution, industrial products, unhealthy nutrition, smoking and alcohol can invite this dangerous cancer as well as 15 percent genetic transmission. She emphasized that people with ovarian, breast and intestinal cancers should have regular check-ups once a year for their gynecologists. Osman Temizkan says:
"Hele is a common complaint of low back pain nowadays, and because it does not care 'can be painful' can be passed or referred to the painkiller. Going to the obstetrician does not come to mind at all. However, if you can not say 'I am sick', 'I have a sore throat' and it is not possible to benefit from the treatment recommended by your doctor, you should definitely go to a gynecologist. A woman diagnosed with ovarian cancer must resort to a team that is experienced in this regard, a team that can plan the surgery before and after surgery, and plan treatment afterwards. "
THE MOST IMPORTANT TREATMENT OF OVARIAN CANCER
Stating that the first treatment of ovarian cancer is surgery, Temizkan says that the first surgeon can affect the whole life if the first surgeon does not perform successfully on time, while the first surgeon indicates the life span of the patient as a treatment that affects everything. Experts say the treatment of early stage ovarian cancer is only surgery, and regular checkups every 3 to 6 months and 5 years are enough Expert says that chemotherapy treatment is needed for advanced stage ovarian cancer.
