A team of researchers at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research succeeded in the determination of various biological alterations that occur in the DNA of a female suffering from ovarian cancer. The research was led by Dr Goli Samimi.
As per the reports, a significant progress is said to be made by the researchers after discovering a blood test that will help in early detection of ovarian cancer. Dr. Samimi stated on Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day on Wednesday that early detection of the cancer will be beneficial in improving the rate of survival from this disease. She added that the symptoms of the disease are very common and are usually faced by women.
These symptoms include Bloating, change in appetite and fatigue. Other than these symptoms, a woman suffering from ovarian cancer can also face problems like abdominal or pelvic pain, increased abdominal size and needing to urinate often or urgently.
Ovarian cancer survivor and advocate Margaret Rose termed the early detection of the cancer as "enormous". Rose is the chair person of the Garvan Institute ovarian cancer research fund.
An urge is made by the Ovarian Cancer Australia to those women who are facing these problems to have an immediate consultation with their doctor.
