Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries, which are two almond-shaped glands located on either side of the uterus.

The ovaries produce the female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, and release eggs during a woman’s reproductive years (the time from her first menstrual period through menopause).

Many signs of ovarian cancer, such as abdominal bloating, may suggest a gastrointestinal issue.

Talk with your doctor about ovarian cancer being part of the problem.
