A female patient, in her 40s, has a huge pelvic tumor during the clinic, exceeding 10cm, because the tumor compresses the bladder, and the patient shows obvious frequent urination and urgency symptoms.
At the beginning of these symptoms, the patient always thought that it was urinary infection. He also went to the clinic to consult and tested blood and urine. The results were normal.Some drugs that treat urinary infections.
But the symptoms did not ease, but gradually aggravated.
Later, when she found that she was lying flat, it seemed to be able to touch a tuber in the lower abdomen.
However, frequent urination and emergency symptoms are becoming more and more obvious. Just like when you are pregnant, you want to go to the toilet after a while, and you can’t hold it. There is no way to go to the hospital for treatment.
The situation of abdominal mass immediately attracted the attention of the doctor. After some examinations, the final result diagnosed ovarian cancer.
It’s strange, right, ovarian cancer is related to the number of urination times?
Ovarian cancer is actually a very "hidden" disease. The reason why it is hidden is because the ovaries are located in the deep part of the pelvic cavity. In the early stage of cancer, there is no symptom at all. It is not until the tumor develops to a certain degree.Symptoms, so some people call ovarian cancer a "silent killer".
As the condition worsens, the tumor continues to increase, which will cause violations of the surrounding organs. At this time, patients will gradually show a variety of discomfort. Typical symptoms can have triple signs: abdominal lumps, ascites and abdominal pain.
But in actual work, most patients will only have one of them.For example: When the tumor is huge, you can touch the pelvic cavity by yourself; when the tumor invades the peritoneum and produces a large amount of ascites, the patient can find that the belly is much larger than before, the abdominal circumference is widened and the abdominal distension;There can be frequent urination and urination, and the number of urination is increased, just like this patient; when the tumor affects the intestinal tract, there will be abnormal bowel movements.
These symptoms are sometimes difficult to connect with ovarian cancer.
Therefore, for ovarian cancer, we cannot discover early through our own symptoms. Once we have the above symptoms, approximately 70%of patients have entered the advanced stage.
At present, the cause of ovarian cancer is not very clear. Most of them occur in women after menopause, and there are no obvious causes of onset, so it is difficult to fundamentally prevent the occurrence of ovarian cancer.
What we can do is to screen regular medical examinations, or when there are some symptoms that cannot be explained, we have a little sense of prevention and go to the hospital earlier.
In the current conventional physical examination, they will include gynecological ultrasound, and some also include tumor marks (CA-125) test packages. Although these tests are still 100 % screening for early ovarian cancer, it is found that ovarian cancer changesThe main means is also an important means that the vast majority of early ovarian cancer can be discovered. Earlier discovery means that there is a little more hope of healing. Female friends after 40 years of age are required to have a healthy medical examination at least once a year.
In addition, a small number of patients are related to genetic. Studies have found that people carrying BRCA1/2 genetic mutation genes have greatly increased the risk of ovarian cancer.
Epidemiological statistics show that the risk of ovarian cancer in ordinary women’s life is only about 1%, while the risk of people who carry the BRCA1/2 mutant gene can be as high as 54%of ovarian cancer in their lives.High incidence of cancer and primary peritoneal cancer.
Therefore, for people with many patients with ovarian cancer, breast cancer, and primary peritoneal cancer in the family, direct relatives recommend genetic testing. If they are carried with genetic mutation genes, the age of ovarian cancer should be advanced and shortened and shortenedScreening time, for example, after 30 years of age, at least once a year, at least once a year, a gynecological ultrasound combined with tumor marker CA-125, and carcinoma antigen examination. If a suspicious lesion is found, it should be further performed by pelvic magnetic magnetism and further investigation.
The threat of malignant tumors to people is self -evident, especially for "silent" cancer like ovarian cancer, all we can do is to have more health awareness and master a little healthy knowledge. In addition to regular physical examinations, some of the body appear on the body.Symptoms that are difficult to explain, it is necessary to ask tumor specialists to help analyze to prevent possible risks.
Just like the female friend mentioned at the beginning, there is no bacterial infection in the urinary system, but there are always difficulty in urinary urgency that is difficult to explain. You need to be alert to whether there are other potential diseases.
