Linda Young Ovarian Cancer Support Program
Linda Young Ovarian Cancer Support Program

Provides information and support to women with ovarian and other gynecologic cancers. Educates the public and medical community about symptoms and detection of ovarian cancer. Offers financial assistance to women with gynecologic cancer. Ovarian Cancer is the deadliest of gynecologic cancers but early detection and treatment greatly improves survival. Once thought of as a silent killer, we now know that almost 90% of women experience symptoms at the early-stages of Ovarian Cancer. There is not yet a test to diagnose Ovarian Cancer, so Awareness is Best.

Know what to do:
If you have these symptoms almost daily for more than two weeks, or have symptoms that are unusual for your body, see your gynecologist. Experts recommend a pelvic/rectal exam, a CA-125 blood test, and a trans-vaginal ultrasound. If ovarian cancer is suspected, seek out a gynecologic oncologist. (foundationforwomenscancer.org).
