[Fan Laixun] I was sitting on the sofa in the living room, and my heart was tangled.My mother -in -law is 50 years old. She is a hard -working and kind person, and her mother is also meticulous.Unfortunately, my old man died too early, leaving her to take care of her children and me alone.
In recent months, I have noticed that my mother -in -law’s belly has begun to become bigger and bigger.At first, I thought it was only caused by age, muscle relaxation, but over time, her belly became extremely obvious.What worried me even more was that she began to have frequent nausea and vomiting symptoms.
I started to doubt whether my mother -in -law was pregnant.Although this sounds incredible
Everyone’s health is crucial, and sometimes we may face some confusing symptoms.A common situation is that the stomach is inexplicable, accompanied by some discomfort.This may be a worrying signal, which may imply a potential disease, such as ovarian cancer.
What is the instructions of ovarian cancer?
1. The background of ovarian cancer
Ovarian cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors in women’s reproductive systems and is highly fatal.It usually occurs in ovarian epithelial cells and is difficult to detect in the early stages.Due to the lack of obvious symptoms, most patients were diagnosed only when cancer had developed to the advanced stage, which greatly reduced the success rate and survival rate of treatment.
Ovarian is two small organs in the pelvic cavity in the female reproductive system, which is responsible for producing eggs and female hormones.Ovarian epithelial cells may cause abnormal changes and form tumors.These tumors are divided into two types: benign and malignant, of which malignant tumors are ovarian cancer.
Early ovarian cancer usually does not cause obvious symptoms, or the symptoms are very mild, and it is easy to be ignored.This is one of the main causes of ovarian cancer treatment difficulties and low survival rates.When cancer progresses to the late stage, some symptoms may occur, including the following aspects:
Abdominal discomfort: Including abdominal distension, abdominal pain, abdominal pressure or discomfort, this is one of the most common symptoms.Tumor growth of ovarian cancer will increase the pressure in the abdomen and cause discomfort.
Gastrointestinal problems: Ovarian cancer may lead to digestion problems, such as nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and poor digestion.These symptoms may be related to the impact of tumors on digestive organs.
Pelvic pain: Ovarian cancer may cause pain or discomfort in the pelvic area, which may be caused by tumor expanding compression of surrounding tissues and organs.
Frequent urination and difficulty in urination: When ovarian tumors are enlarged and compressed the urethra or bladder, urine -related problems such as frequent urination, urgency, and dysuria may occur.
Light weight: Some patients may lose weight without obvious reasons, which may be due to the impact of tumors on metabolism.
2. Common causes of belly expansion
Gastrointestinal problems: For example, indigestion, flatulence, gastrointestinal tract infection, etc. can cause gas to accumulate in the digestive system and cause abdominal distension.Gastrointestinal problems are usually accompanied by symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, and stomach burning.
Water retention: When the body is left with too much liquid, especially in the abdominal cavity, it can cause abdominal swelling and swelling.This may be caused by renal dysfunction, heart disease, liver or lymphatic system problems.Water retention is usually accompanied by symptoms such as weight gain and body swelling.
Intestinal problems: For example, intestinal diseases such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, etc. may cause inflammation and swelling of intestinal walls, which will cause abdominal swelling.Other intestinal problems, such as intestinal obstruction, intestinal excitement syndrome, etc., may also lead to similar symptoms.
When the belly expansion accompanies other symptoms, it is necessary to pay more attention to possible potential problems, especially when symptoms such as abdominal pain, indigestion and loss of appetite exist at the same time.These symptoms may be a sign of severe diseases such as ovarian cancer.Tumor growth of ovarian cancer will put pressure on the abdominal organs, leading to inflation in the abdomen, and may cause abdominal pain and digestion problems.Ovarian cancer may also cause weight loss and other related symptoms.
Third, the connection between the belly expansion and ovarian cancer
The expansion of the stomach is one of the common symptoms of ovarian cancer.When the tumor of ovarian cancer grows and expands, it puts pressure on the nearby organ to cause abdominal swelling.Ovarian cancer may also cause the accumulation of ascites and further aggravate the symptoms of abdominal swelling.His ascites are a kind of liquid accumulation in the abdominal cavity. It may be a manifestation of the late ovarian cancer.
4. Other symptoms related to ovarian cancer
In addition to the expansion of the stomach, ovarian cancer may also be accompanied by other symptoms, such as pelvic pain, digestive problems, frequent urination, difficulty in urination, and weight loss.These symptoms may not be obvious, especially in the early stages, but if they appear and continue to exist, further examination should be checked in time.
The expansion of the stomach may be a prompt symptom of ovarian cancer, especially when it appears with other related symptoms.The expansion of the belly does not necessarily mean that it must have ovarian cancer, and it may also be caused by other reasons.Therefore, if you feel uncomfortable or worried about your body, it is best to consult a doctor for professional assessment and diagnosis.Early detection of ovarian cancer can increase the cure rate and increase the opportunity of treatment.
