Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Understanding Risk Factors

Understanding the risk factors of ovarian cancer is crucial for early detection and prevention.

Ovarian cancer is often called the silent killer because symptoms are difficult to detect in it’s early stages.

However certain factors increase the risk of developing this type of cancer. Factors such as age, family history, genetic mutation, hormone replacement therapy, and being overweight

By recognizing these risk factors women can take proactive steps such as regular checkups, genetic testing, maintaining a healthy weight, and discussing preventive measures with their doctor.
