September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.  Now all cancer is scary, but this one can sneak up on a person.  There’s no mammogram, no palpable lump to alert you to its presence.  In fact, the symptoms are easily ascribed to other very common ailements.

* Bloating
* Pelvic or abdominal pain
* Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
* Urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency)

Sound like something you might have?  Right.  All of us have those symptoms from time to time.  So here’s the deal.  If you have any of these symptoms for longer than 2 weeks, go see your doctor.  Seriously.
