Research finds out that ovarian cancer deaths can be reduced by this method!


Ovarian cancer is a mostly genetic cancer, which affects the woman’s ovaries and quickly spreads to other parts of the body like bowels and abdominal cavity and ultimately results in the death of the patients, unless the cancer is diagnosed and treated.

But since the cancer spreads quickly, diagnosis in early stages is quite difficult. According to American Cancer Society, there are no good tests for determining the cancer early. But a new study conducted in UK, has given hope and debunked ACS’s stance.

Here is what the research was all about and how it gives a new hope for all the women who live under the threat of this dreadful disease. But before that, let us give details about ovarian cancer.


1 Ovarian cancer

Ovarian cancer is the cancer that begins in the ovaries and then expands its roots into other parts of the body. This type of cancer is pretty common in women who experience uncommon pain in their stomachs.

The cancer is also dangerous as it is a fast spreading cancer. It originates in the ovaries and quickly spreads to abdominal cavity, the bowels and abdominal lining. Once it reaches these places, the next in line is usually the liver and/or lungs.

The scientists do not know clearly as to what causes ovarian cancer, but the most known reasons are genetic fault. 10 out of 1000 ovarian cancers are due to the mutation of BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes in the DNA of the patient.
