The incidence of ovarian cancer varies greatly. Globally, Scandinavia, Israel, and North America have the highest rates. Developing countries and Japan have the lowest rates. Is this a environmental cancer? They are not sure however it does tend to raise a Question. I remember the Oncologist telling us she was not sure about the cause but one research is showing it could be environmental. Heredity accounts for only about 20% of the cases. This raises the question of other sources. What ever the source it is important to know the facts. Look at the above symptoms if you , your mother, sister or friend have them a lot, go to the doctor get check out, be persistence and make sure you are satisfied with the outcome. Early detection is essential for survival.
